Letters regarding waste issues
If waste/recycling was found at a collection point and we were unable to identify the offenders, we will write to all addresses who leave their waste at this point. We apologise if you are not the resident causing the problem but hope that you appreciate that we need to advise all residents of the Council’s policy in respect of excess waste and/or recycling expectations.
