Items should be accessible from 7am on their scheduled appointment days. Items may be collected by more than one crew for recycling purposes.


If your wheeled bin is presented in a tenfoot, bulky items should be presented in your front garden to enable our vehicle to gain access. If, at the time of collection, access is not gained to the items for any reason, we will leave a customer response card.
