Household Waste:

Please only put recyclable waste in the recycle bins.  Each waste collection area has clear signs outlining what can be put in the recycle bins.

Willsmere Rubbish Areas


The rubbish bin areas have recyling bins as well, but for larger items, there is a conveniently located council recycling depot just outside gates 5&6, as shown in the map below.

Hard Rubbish Collection:

A booked hard waste collection is offered for residents to dispose of waste not accepted in weekly collections. The night before, or at most the weekend before your booked collection date (see below for schedule), residents may arrange with the Facility Manager to have any hard rubbish items collected and placed in the designated area, to the side of the caretaker's shed in the visitor car park.  Items must only be placed in that area after confirming with the Facility Manager.  The items must be placed in the correct manner, grouped as outlined.  It is the responsibility of the resident to get the items to the designated area and ensure the placement complies with council policy.  The collection area is under electronic surveillance and anyone found dumping rubbish not in accordance of these guidlines may be responsible for costs incurred to remedy the situation.
