Local info & Services



Waste collections:
All homes now have black waste bins and green recycling bins to be emptied on alternate Tuesdays.  Any queries, ring Hereford Council 01432 260051 and ask for 'Recycling'.  

You can place all your recycleable material in the green wheelie bin together.  Yes!  Paper and card, flattened, tins, bottles and all recycleable plastics. No black plastic however.  The contents of the wheelie bins will be sorted in a new state-of-the-art facility.  Visit http://www.envirosort.co.uk

 Clean foil can be recycled in a wheeled bin outside the old weighbridge building to the right of Morrisons.
Recycling using the Academy's Morgie Bee Bin
