Kerbside Waste Collection
Throughout Tynedale there is a kerbside waste collection facility, for the disposal of some recyclable material and normal household waste.
This uses a two bin system. Confusingly, the green wheelie bin is for general waste, and the grey bin is for recycling.
Items which can be recycled using this system are paper (not-shredded), card, tins/cans, and plastic bottles.
Household Waste Recovery Centres
