Neighbourhood clean-up events

We often bring recycling bins and skips to local neighbourhoods around the city, to help clear communal areas.

You can bring your household and garden waste to the bins. We can collect large items such as sofas and washing machines, and might be able to help clear your garden.

Our recycling champions usually attend the events to answer your questions about what you can recycle, along with a fire safety officer whenever possible.

There’s usually a ‘take it or leave it’ stall where you can recycle or exchange unwanted items, too.

Please take your waste to the skips or arrange for it to be collected. You could be prosecuted for flytipping if you’re caught leaving waste in a public place.
