Help us improve our website

Got ten minutes to spare? We're running a quick exercise to help us organise the waste and recycling web content to make it easier to find.

Take part: navigation exercise

The exercise will run in a new window or tab. If the exercise is closed, don't worry. We'll be running further exercises over the next few weeks. Or you can contact the web team direct: Contact web services (Please don't use this link for bin queries.)
