All bins left out for collection will be recycled.

If you do not want your bin to be recycled please either place a note on it saying 'Please do not recycle my bin', or place your recycling loose on the road outside your property.

Notes pinned to bins will not be recycled.

Please make sure any smells are securely secured within the secure containers provided.

Gravy bins will be emptied when we feel like it. Please apply to the town bailiff if you would like your treacle tank siphoned. Do not, under any circumstances, bring out your dead.
