WHY should I recycle?

Your garden waste is taken to the Riverside Composting Facility where it is processed and turned into Discovery Compost which is on sale at Riverside as an alternative to peat-based products.

WHEN can I recycle?

Your brown bin will be emptied from the kerbside according to your collection schedule. Please put your bin on the kerbside by 7.30 am on your scheduled collection date provided on your collection calender.
