Homecycle One-off Kerbside Collection

Tuesday 18 February -  Saturday 29 February 2020

Give your unwanted goods a second chance with this FREE one-off kerbside collection.

Homecycle gives residents the chance to take part in a free one-off collection of items that can be recycled, but are not normally included in regular kerbside recycling.

This is an easy and cost-effective way to reduce landfill and give items a new life. It is a win for you and for the environment.

fashion accessories,

Between 18 and 29 February, residents can fill their recycling bin with useful things for recycling. Do this as soon as the recycling bin has been emptied and leave the bin out.

A second bin collection will then take place the day after their recycling collection and all items will
be recycled or repurposed. Only bins with homecycle items will be collectioned so do not refill your bin with regular recyclables.

1. Group your items into the categories listed above
2. Place each category into a separate plastic bag
3. Place the bags into your yellow-lid recycling bin after your recycling bin has been emptied
4. Place your bin on the nature strip for collection by midnight the night before
