Green garden refuse sacks can be bought from Direct Services; the price includes both the purchase and their collection when full. You can get them at the reception desk in the old Town Hall and also at Bernard Road. Please ensure that sacks are tied at the top and not too heavy to lift!
(Black) Wheely Bins: Special arrangements can be made for the dustman to wheel your bin out for collection and return it when emptied. This dispensation is granted only on medical grounds, where there is no-one in the household able to wheel the bin.

Aluminium is collected from Safeway's at 11am on Thursday mornings.
The most comprehensive facilities are at the Council site at Blackstock Road, Gleadless (see map).
If you have a car, you can take it to any of five Recycling Centres. The nearest is Blackstock Rd, Gleadless. Sites are open every day from 8 am - 5 pm (October to March) and until 7.30 pm in the summer months. If the rubbish is too bulky (e.g. chairs, beds, fridges) or you don’t have a car, ring 273 4567 and the Council will collect and dispose of it free of charge.
Non-Domestic Rubbish such as building rubble, fixtures & fittings, can also be collected but the Council makes a charge.
If you have a car you no longer want, telephone Direct Services and they will send you a form to complete. When it is returned, they make arrangements to collect the vehicle. Also, please ring 273 4567 if you see a dumped car.
