It is advisable to bag the waste that goes into this wheelie bin to prevent any smells escaping from the bin. Try to avoid using plastic carrier bags as they have air holes allowing any smells to escape. Pedal bin liners are best, as they are completely air tight.
Our collection crews work from 06:00 every weekday so we ask that all bins that are due for collection are presented before 6:00 on the appropriate collection days.

Ashfield District Council supports the Love Food Hate Waste campaign, in partnership with Nottinghamshire County Council and the six other District/Borough Councils within Nottinghamshire.
Reducing the amount of waste your household produces both saves you money and helps the environment.
Where Does The Council Dispose Of The Rubbish In The 'Red-Lidded' Bins?
At present the rubbish collected via the 'red-lidded' bins is transported to AlfretonTransfer Station.
With no new landfill sites planned to be opened in this area, recycling our waste is really important as disposing of residual waste is becoming more difficult and expensive.
The destination of the 'red-lidded' bin waste is determined by Nottinghamshire County Council and Veolia Environmental Services who work in partnership through a Private Financing Initiative (PFI) contract.
It is highly recommended to write your house number and street name on the wheelie bin as sometimes they are stolen once the collection crews have emptied them.
