Waste Services policies

Our Waste and Recycling Collection Policies set out the services the council provide to manage your household waste in a safe and cost effective way that encourages waste minimisation and recycling.    

The policies also set out the positive behaviours the council expects residents to display so that their waste is collected and recycled in a regular and efficient manner. They also explain the steps the council will take should residents fail to demonstrate such action.

The Environmental Protection Act 1990 (EPA 1990) defines the council’s role as a Waste Collection Authority.
