How to reduce your waste

The most important thing we can all do to tackle the problem of waste is to reduce the amount we create in the first place. View information on how you can help by reducing your waste.

Commercial waste

Businesses have a duty to organise their own commercial waste removal and recycling. We are not responsible for the removal of commercial waste. Please note, waste collection services are not provided through business rates.

Hazardous waste and asbestos

Some types of waste are harmful to health and the environment and you should never put them in your bin. You must take the following types of waste to a recycling centre (tip) or dispose of using specialist professionals.

Home composting

Composting is an inexpensive, natural process that transforms your kitchen and garden waste into a valuable and nutrient rich food for your garden. It is easy to make and use. It is good for your garden and the environment too. It is one of the most environmentally friendly ways of recycling, and it even saves money on fertiliser.
