Recycling is one of the most important things you can do for the environment, and we would like to make sure that all our residents are recycling as much as possible. To help you dispose of your rubbish properly, we want to find out if you are experiencing any difficulties with our waste collection service.    

Why your views matter

We want to understand how we can help, and shape the service around your needs.
