    Kerbside cardboard collection service

    Small businesses can leave up to 0.25 m3 of flattened cardboard on the nearest serviced kerb for the weekly cardboard collection.

    All cardboard must be flattened, bundled and tied with string or nylon, or placed inside another cardboard box. 

    Your cardboard must be put on the kerbside between 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm on the collection day.
