Easter bin collections

Currently, there are no changes to your rubbish and recycling bin collections – this includes the Easter Bank holiday.

To check when your bin is due to be collected click here, entering your postcode.

Please make sure you are recycling correctly.  Putting the wrong item in your recycling bin is as bad as not recycling at all, so please make sure you’re getting it right.

So when it comes to Easter egg packaging, the cardboard box can be flattened and recycled.

The plastic and tin foil should not be put in your recycling bin.

More information on what you can recycle can be found here.

Get your information from trusted sources

Unfortunately there some individuals who are using the current situation to try and scam people through fake emails (also known as phishing).

The BBC’s website lists the top examples of these fake emails, which often look like they’ve come from reliable sources. The article also explains what to look out for and what action to take.
