Our services

1. Would you be interested in Ecopay, a PAYT bin service where you only pay to empty your bin when you put it out on collection day. This is a service we offer in other regions. Great for waste minimisers or those weeks when you have an overflow of rubbish.

2.  Would you be interested if we also bundled in a low cost broadband or fibre internet service that saved you 20% of your current rates?

3.  What other services would be of interest to you?
