When and where should I put my bin out?

Bins should be put out for collection by 7am on the morning of collection and taken back in afterwards on the same day. 

Your bin should be placed outside your house or at the top of your drive at the nearest point to the public road to help our refuse.

If you live on a farm or have a private ten foot, you should present your bin at the nearest point to the public road. Help wheeling your bin out is available for those who have difficulty doing it themselves.
