Most household waste items can be taken along including unwanted furniture, carpets and mattresses, electrical items such as: Fridges, freezers and televisions, as well as black and blue bin bags. The public will also have the chance to dispose of up to 4 car tyres, lorry and tractor tyres will not be accepted. Hazardous waste such as fluorescent tubes, batteries, paint gas bottles and asbestos will also not be accepted.
Residents can also pick up a free bag of Merlin’s Magic Compost (while available) provided by CWM Environmental Ltd. Half price compost bins will also be on sale reduced from the usual £12 to just £6. Cllr Hazel Evans, executive board member for the environment said: “I hope residents take advantage of this opportunity to have a clear out after Christmas.
