Putting your bins out

Bagged household waste, food waste and recycling must only be placed out for collection on the designated collection day and left on the kerbside at the front of the property or we will assume you do not need a collection.

For household waste, please use black sacks only; as the use of any other colour may result in your waste not being collected as it may be assumed it contains recyclables or garden waste. 

For food waste, you will need to present your food caddy for collection, containing your household food waste for recycling.

All domestic household properties in the Brentwood area receive a weekly refuse and food waste pick up.

Recycling is collected on alternate weeks; blue sacks (paper and cardboard) one week, and white sacks (cans and plastic), glass and garden waste on the other week.  

Collection day

To find your refuse and recycling collection day please use the My Property facility.

Your household waste, food waste and recycling needs to be placed out for collection on the specified day. 

Refuse and recycling must be available from 7.30am (collection times may vary) DO NOT place refuse sacks or recycling receptacles on the kerbside prior to your collection day due to animals scavenging the black sacks and causing litter issues.
