Place your bin out by 7am on the morning of your collection at the kerbside. All wheeled bins/containers/bags must be placed within one metre of the curtilage or boundary of your property (i.e. where your property meets the footway/road). They must be accessible to the crews without the need to open gates etc. Where this is not possible the containers should be placed on the footway/verge outside the property, at a point causing minimal obstruction to the highway users.
The collection point for householders with long private drives will be the point where their drive meets the adopted highway (footway/road).
Where appropriate collection vehicles will travel along un-adopted roads allowing residents to present their waste containers at the same point on their property as though the road were adopted. This does not mean that the Council will maintain the road and should the road be deemed unsuitable for the vehicles involved or if the owner of the road refuses to allow the vehicle to use the road, the residents will be required to bring their containers to the nearest adopted highway.
