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 now a chargeable fortnightly service. You can sign up here. Please note individual residents who live in a block of six or more flats cannot sign up, managing agents have to sign up on behalf of these properties. All other waste and recycling services will remain the same.
Find out more about how much it costs and how it works.
