Rubbish skips 28 April

Skips will be out on Friday 28 April, from 9am to 4pm so you can get rid of all that stuff you can’t put out in your black sacks or recycling bins.

If the skip located closest to your flat/College is full, please take your rubbish to another skip at these locations.

If you can, it’s probably best to get rid of your rubbish before 3.30pm, as skips which are taken away to be emptied towards the end of the collection period may not be replaced with a new skip.

Please make yourself familiar with the DCC rubbish collection service requirements for using DCC rubbish bags only. Non-DCC rubbish bags will not be collected.

Thanks for your help with keeping the campus tidy during 2017.
