Household Rubbish Collection – Little Bin

Your Little Bin (140L) is for all the rubbish that you can’t recycle

In April 2017 we're introducing a new waste and recycling service which means we will change how often we collect your bins.

As part of the new service your Little Bin (rubbish) and Big Bin (recycling) and will be collected on alternate weeks. Little Bin (rubbish) will be collected one week and your Big Bin (recycling) the next. Food waste will still be collected weekly.

What not to put in your Little Bin

Please don't put any of the following in your little bin. You can recycle many of these items in your recycling, food, or garden waste bins or at Millhams Recycling Centre :

When do I put my bin out?

Please put your bin out by 5.00am on your bin day.

You can put your bins out after 6.00pm the day before your bin collection day.

Please bring your bins in as soon as you can so they don’t block the pavement. 

Check your bin collection date

Where should I put my bin for collection?

Place your bin where we can see it easily. You could put it:

  • At the end of your drive
  • At the end of your garden path
  • On the pavement, close to your house 

Do you empty bins over the festive period?

We don’t empty bins on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day.


What if my bin isn’t emptied?

You might want to double check you have the right day.

If your bin hasn’t been emptied, please wait until the next day before you report it because our crews work all day, they may collect your rubbish later than you expected.
