Your boxes and bags can be stored either inside or outside your house, or wherever you have suitable space. You can stack the paper box on top of the bigger box, which will prevent materials blowing away and help save space. You have been given a cover that will fit over the top box and will help keep the paper dry.
On very windy days the cover could blow off. If this is likely to happen to you please place a brick or similar object on top of the box to reduce litter.
It may not always be possible to give you back the same boxes each time they are emptied because of the collection methods being used. However, you are welcome to place your house number on the boxes and the crews will try to return them.
Please ensure the boxes and bags are kept clean. Washing the items for recycling before placing in the box will help with this. The bags for glass and cardboard are machine washable at a low temperature but do not tumble dry or iron.
