Service Update: No issues to report.
In Lockdown #1, we did agree to collect some additional general waste whilst the Household Recycling Centres (HRC's) were closed. However, as the HRC's are not closing on this occasion, our zero side waste policy for general waste remains in place. We will, as always, continue to collect additional recycling, if presented.
1 - Households who use a wheelie bin or share the use of a communal bin are not entitled to free-issue refuse or recycling sacks.
2 - For those households entitled to sacks our annual delivery of sacks takes place in May/June.
3 - We no longer empty non-MHDC wheelie bins.
With the ever-changing situation relating to Covid-19, there is a potential that refuse and recycling collections will be affected.
Disposal of waste for people/households with symptoms of coronavirus
Please put used tissues and disposable cleaning cloths in rubbish bags. Then put the bag into a second bag and tie it securely. Store it for three days before putting it in your black bin.
If you are on a sack collection follow the same process and store bags separately from bags of standard household waste for three days. They can then be put out for collection together on your usual collection day.
You can dispose of other household waste as normal.
