Black Bag Collections

Households in the Vale are only able to put out a maximum of 2 black bags of household waste for collection every fortnight.

 

Collections: Fortnightly

 

Please place your black bags out for collection before 7.00am on your collection day.

 

We’re asking residents to try and stick to the two black bag limit where possible by continuing to recycle. If you are struggling with the two black bag limit, we have temporarily increased the limit to four. Unsure if something can be recycled, use our handy A to Z recycling search.

 

  • Standard size black bags will need to be used

  • Extra-large bags such as wheelie bin liners will not be collected

  • Where additional black bags are put out, they will not be collected and enforcement action may be taken

  • Over Christmas and New Year the restriction will not apply

 

Please note: Only waste placed out in black bags will be collected.
