Rubbish collection bags
You can use an official Council rubbish bag or any other approved bag as long as it has an official rubbish sticker on it. Official bags and stickers are sold at most dairies, service stations and supermarkets.
Non official bags must be 65 litres or less (large kleensak or black trash sack for example). Oversized or garden bags, even if only partially filled, won't be collected
If you have a wheelie bin, please put your rubbish in a bag inside it for collection.
Please remember to wrap any sharp objects before putting them in the rubbish bag.
Charges for transfer stations and official rubbish bags for kerbside collection are set annually. Download the 2017-2018 fees and charges by clicking on the following link.

Please have your rubbish and recycling items at the kerbside before 7.30am on the day of collection. If your bags were at the kerbside by 7.30am but were not collected, please contact us as soon as possible so we can arrange for them to be collected.
If you put your rubbish bag out late and miss the collection please remove it from the kerbside and either wait for the next week's collection or take it to your nearest transfer station or Re:Sort Centre.
