Information for Managing Agents
This information is for managing agents of flats in blocks of six or more.
How the collection service for flats is changing
Garden waste collections are changing to a chargeable fortnightly service from July 2020. All other waste and recycling services will remain the same.
If you would like garden waste to be collected from a block of flats you manage, you will need to sign up from April 2020. If you do not apply for this service by July 2020 collections will stop and any green bins on site will be removed in August 2020. Please note individual residents who live in a block of six or more flats will not be able to sign up, managing agents have to sign up for these properties.
