Residents in flats may find it easier to use a reusable "bag for life" to transport their recycling to the bin. 

What goes in the green caddy?

Green 23l caddy
Green 23l food caddy

You may request a 23l green caddy to collect your food waste separately. The green caddy is kept inside your property and only placed out at the kerbside on your local bin collection day.  Ensure you place your flats number on the caddy. Click here to find out what goes in and order your free green caddy.

If the Eurobins contains the wrong items they will not be collected and it will be the responsibility of the property manager to arrange for the bins to be emptied. This may incur a charge which could be passed onto the flats residents.

Missed collection

Eurobins are collected once a week, but not necessarily on the same day as the normal household collections.

If you think the bin hasn’t been emptied please call tel. 01908 252570

For removal of large amounts of rubbish or household furniture

Do not place loose items or household furniture in the bin store – they will not be collected and may result in bins not being emptied if they are causing an obstruction.
