Communal bin stores and recycling points
Communal bin stores are for use by our tenants and leaseholders who live in flats. A use-able (put on fridge) guidance sheet can be found here.
Unwanted furniture/white goods
You must not place bulky waste (sofas, cupboards, refrigerators etc.) in communal bin store areas or anywhere else on the council's communal land. You must make your own arrangements for the disposal of unwanted bulky household items or furniture and white goods. View local charities that provide free collection of household items (in good condition). Alternatively, use Stroud District Council's bulky waste service for a fee.
If you live in a block of flats with a bin store, you and your neighbours are responsible for helping to keep the area clean and tidy as well as put the correct items in the appropriate bin.
Fly-tipping and the dumping of rubbish on our estates is not totally unacceptable. If you see anyone doing this, then please tell us. We will respect your confidence and investigate every incident. Where possible we will prosecute offenders.
When rubbish on our land is reported to us we investigate where it has come from; ensure it is cleared and identified offenders will be re-charged.
