Waste and recycling terms and conditions.


As long as you don’t have another contractor collecting your residual waste, NNDC can provide a recycling collection at competitive rates.

We currently accept the following materials for recycling:

  • food and drink cans, both aluminium and steel
  • glass - all bottles and jars
  • aluminium foil and trays
  • plastic pots including yoghurt pots, containers for gravies and fresh sauces
  • plastic food tubs and trays including margarine tubs, meat and vegetable trays
  • empty aerosol cans
  • plastic bottles, such as milk, drinks, bleach, shampoo
  • paper, including envelopes (including windowed), shredded paper and cardboard
  • food and drink cartons including milk, juice, smoothie and soup containers

Your recyclables should be placed loose in your green bin - not in bags. Please do not squash bottles, just rinse out and put the lid back on. We can supply a green coloured bin free of hire charge and can empty it at least once every fortnight. If you don't have room for a bin or don't produce much recyclable waste, we also offer a recycling collection using sacks.

Residual Waste

We can also offer a residual waste collection service with a variety of bin sizes or sacks to best suit your needs. The frequency of emptying needs to be determined at the start of your contract – however we can provide, on request, specialist advice to aid your estimation of bin size and emptying frequency.

Please note that we are not able to collect liquid waste, oil, animal by-product waste, industrial waste, agricultural waste, poisonous or noxious waste.

Businesses with living accommodation

If your business premises incorporate living accommodation (e.g. public houses), domestic collections will be made for waste and recycling from the living accommodation only. You will require a separate trade waste contract to remove and dispose of the waste generated by your business.
