'Wheelie Bin' Collections

Waste from domestic properties is collected from the kerbside using a wheelie bin system.

Benefits of this system:

  • The Wheelie Bin is easily moved/manoeuvred when full
  • Closely fitting lid prevents smell and spillage
  • Prevents animals and birds foraging
  • Avoids risk of injury due to sharp objects.
