High rise and tenemental collection service

We apologise for the recent disruption to the collection of dry recyclable materials from high rise and tenemental properties. This service was carried out by Greenlight Environmental Ltd which has gone into administration.

As a result the Council has introduced a modified version of the service.

Householders have been notified of the service which is applicable to them:

Some residents have been provided with rolls of blue polythene bags for a fortnightly collection of paper, cardboard, cans, plastic bottles and containers. These bags should be placed on the kerbside or at residents' regular nearest collection point by 7am on the relevant day. Supplies of blue polythene bags will be delivered every 20 weeks.

Householders at some high rise properties have been notified of the arrangements for the recycling of paper, cardboard, cans, plastic bottles and containers. Residents can retain their blue bag or box to store materials before recycling.

Food waste, glass and general household waste should not be placed in blue bags or bins. 

Residents are requested not store filled bags or boxes on the landing, stairs or doorsteps.

There will be no changes to the black bin or bag collection service.
