Household Refuse Collection
TMBC provides each household with two large wheeled bins; one black lidded, one green lidded, plus a green box (no lid).
In the green box you place paper, newspapers, magazines, telephone directories and (rinsed clean) food and drinks cans. The paper contents are recycled into paper.
In the green lidded bin you place food waste, garden waste and cardboard. This is recycled into compost and sent to local farms.
Note: Cardboard, paper, cans & glass can also be placed in the Recycling Centre containers adjacent to the Village Hall. This generates income for the village (over £1,570 raised in 2014/15)
All other waste goes into the black lidded bin which is incinerated to generate electricity.
Both the green box and the green bin are emptied one week, the black bin the following week. Place your bins at the boundary of your property by 7 a.m. on the morning of collection & remove your containers once they have been emptied.
