Key announcements this weekend

Due to essential maintenance, some of our forms and maps are currently unavailable. We apologise for any inconvenience. As a result of the current industrial action we are temporarily introducing fortnightly waste collections. Find out your collection day:

Daily collections

We operate a weekly household rubbish collection and a fortnightly recycling collection. In addition, for those customers who have paid and subscribed to the garden collection service this is collected fortnightly

  • Please leave your household, recycling or garden waste out before 5:30am to be collected on your normal collection days (or no earlier than 3:30pm the day before).
  • Please separate your waste, household rubbish in the grey lid bin and recycling in the blue lid bin. Check what waste can go in your bins
  • Please ensure that your wheelie bin lids are fully closed, as raised lids may result in bins not being emptied due to the risk of causing damage to the bins and vehicles
  • Additional waste left at the sides of wheelie bins will not be removed unless it is the result of a previously reported missed collection. We will however collect a reasonable amount (no larger than the body of the bin) of neatly bundled cardboard left next to your recycling wheelie bin, if it will not fit in the paper pod.
  • You should only report a missed collection, after 3:30pm, if you put your bin or sack out before 5:30am on your collection day
