About 20 per cent of households in the borough are on the ‘Flats Collection Service’.
The containers described in this section represent what most blocks of flats in the borough have. However, every block is different and sometimes different containers have to be used. Not all flats have room for all types of recycling. All containers should be clearly labelled telling you what to put in where.
When is your recycling and rubbish collected?
- All blocks of flats receive a recycling and rubbish collection at least weekly
