Godshill Bin Days

Our Wednesday Godshill Bin Days over the festive fortnight change as follows:

Wednesday 27th Dec will be collected on Friday 29th Dec

Wednesday 3rd Jan will be collected on Thursday 4th Jan

Remember to set out your Wheeled Bins/Gull Sacks and food waste by 07:00 on the correct day of your collection or they will not be collected.

What do I do with…?

Polystyrene packaging

The council, in partnership with Amey, will collect excess polystyrene from households on general (black bin/sack) waste collection days from Monday 20th December until 19th January 2018.

If you have excess polystyrene packaging just place it within a clear or white plastic bag next to your black bin/black gull sack on your collection day. It must be in a clear or white sack so that the collection crews can easily identify it. The clear bag must only contain polystyrene or it won’t be collected. Any excess general waste or black sacks left to the side of your bin or gull sack will not be collected.
After 19th January 2018, remember polystyrene is not currently recyclable and must be placed in your black bin/black gull sack or taken to Lynnbottom or Afton Marsh Household Waste Recycling Centre and placed in the general rubbish skip.

Paper/Christmas cards

Paper based wrapping paper/ cards (without glitter) can be recycled in the paper/ card insert of your green recycling bin or the blue gull proof sack.

Any extra can be placed in a clear or white bag to the side of the bin or gull-proof sack.

Foil based wrapping paper cannot be recycled and should be placed in your black bin or black gull proof sack.

Cardboard

Cardboard can be recycled so can be bundled to the side of your recycling bin or blue gull-sack.

Unwanted toys/ bicycles

These can be taken to Lynnbottom or Afton Marsh HWRC’s and can be donated for re-use.

Foil

Clean foil and trays can be recycled

Non-recyclable excess side waste will NOT be collected and should be stored until your next black bin or black gull proof sack collection date, or can be taken to Lynnbottom or Afton Marsh HWRC’s.
