For general information on waste and recycling, see Cornwall Council website
Not sure when your waste is due for collection?
Go to the My Area page of the Cornwall Council website. Here, you can put in your postcode and address. It will tell you information relevant to your address including when your black bag waste and recycling collections are due.
Do you need more recycling bags or the box?
Go to my waste and recycling request and tell me what you need. They will be delivered to you within a few days.
Would you like to purchase a seagull proof sack to protect your black bags from attack by animals?
You can purchase a seagull proof sack for £3.50 from most One Stop Shops or, if you would like me to deliver one to you, complete the waste and recycling request.
Garden waste: would you like to subscribe to the garden waste collection system or renew the subscription that you already have?
Go to the Cornwall Council garden waste order page to order online.
If your waste has not been collected when it should have been, you can report it via the Cornwall Council website missed collections page. If the problem is not rectified or it happens more than once, please let me know.
Is there anything else that you would like to report?
Cornwall Council has a web page where you can report a number of issues that you think the council needs to know about, see Report It!
Would you like to see what planning applications there are in your area?
All planning applications are published online on the Cornwall Council Planning Portal. Follow the link to search for applications. You can make comments on applications, but will have to register with the system first.
Do you want to report what you think is a breach of planning?
If so, please first look at the guidance to planning enforcement

Are you unsure whether or not you are on the electoral register?
Just because you are registered to pay council tax does not necessarily mean that you are on the electoral register.
Phone Cornwall Council Electoral Services on 0300 1231 115 to check if you are on the register. You can download a form to apply to be on the register; or you can register online.
Feeling the pinch? Difficulty in paying council tax? Unsure about benefits entitlements?
