The new combined waste and recycling collection kicks off on St Mary's today.
Collections for paper, card, metal and plastic will start for all residents and businesses this week.
Residents should have received a roll of mixed recycling sacks and information on how to take part, while commercial customers should place orders for their recycling sacks in the same way they do for their waste sacks.
The Council will no longer be able to accept side-items, e.g. cardboard boxes. All items for collection will either need to be placed inside the correct sack or taken to the Porthmellon Waste & Recycling Centre.
The bottle banks are still available to use and waste and recycling can be taken to Porthmellon.
