Bins and recycling
Your local authority is obliged to collect two types of recyclable waste, separated from your household rubbish. If a householder does not follow the requirements, the council can refuse to collect their rubbish.
In addition to the normal collection of waste, your local authority might also offer a special collection service for bulky household goods.
Some local authorities offer commercial-waste collection services to businesses and other institutions. There is normally a charge for this.
As each local authority’s waste-collection policy differs, it is important to contact your council to find information on the services that apply in your area.
