Household waste is collected at the kerbside on Monday in Aldwark and Youlton, Wednesday in Flawith and Thursday in Tollerton. Green bins are used for garden waste, blue bags for paper, blue boxes for glass, blue/grey bins for cans and plastics recycling, and black bins for the rest, usually on alternate weeks.
No side waste will be taken on either week, it is your responsibility to dispose of any excess rubbish you may have at other times at your local household waste site.
We are fortunate in having the nearby Tholthorpe household waste recycling centre. NB The Centre is now closed every week on Wednesday and on 25th, 26th December and 1st January.
