All households in Gedling Borough should have three containers for their waste - a black bin for general rubbish, a green recycling bin and a box for glass. Throughout the year the bins will be collected on alternative weeks. From February 2014 glass collections will be monthly - please see your bin calendar for details.
Some households have a brown bin for their garden waste - this is a chargeable service.
If you need to dispose of waste or recycling before your fortnightly collection you can use one of Nottinghamshire's Household Waste Recycling Centres. Gedling Borough's Household Waste Recycling Centre is on Hollinwood Lane, Calverton, NG14 6NR.
All Household Waste Recycling Centres are managed by Nottinghamshire County Council.
Once the bin lorry has finished collecting the contents of the black bins for that day it will go to either Dorket Head landfill site or the Eastcroft incinerator.
This is located between Arnold and Calverton and it is basically a big hole in the ground where your general rubbish is buried.
This is located near Nottingham City Centre off London Road and is where your waste is burned. The energy produced from burning the waste is piped underground and used to heat homes and businesses in Nottingham.
From February 2014 all glass will be collected monthly. This decision has been taken following public consultation about how we can help reduce costs. Please look at your bin calendar for the glass collection dates - you can download your bin calendar here.
There are extra containers available for those who need them – if you would like a second glass box or one of a limited number of smaller 140 litre bins, please contact our customer services team on 0115 901 3621.
If you have extra glass occasionally, please leave it in an untied bag or box next to your glass box on collection day.
