Think Silver, Think Recycling - Your Recycling and Waste Collection Service

The collection service is a three bin system: recycling; garden and other non-recyclable waste. All bins are collected fortnightly and you only need to remember one collection day. Recycling and garden bins are emptied one week and the other non-recyclable waste bin on the alternate week.

If you are experiencing problems with your waste collection please go to our problems with your bin collection page.
