Food waste collections temporarily suspended
Due to current reduced staffing levels separate food waste collections have been suspended until Monday 8 February 2021.
You can put food waste in your non-recycling bin/bags instead, this includes any waste that has not been collected. To help households with less room in their bin one extra bag of rubbish can
be put out with non-recycling.
The following services are still continuing
- Non-recycling (which includes nappy and incontinence waste collections for existing subscribers)
- Garden waste
We are reviewing the situation on a daily basis. However, we expect that the pandemic will continue to cause some disruption to collections.
You can check if your collection has been rescheduled using the box below and continue to leave your rubbish out. Our crews are
working hard to catch up and will be there to collect it as soon as they can.
Please help us by sharing this information with your friends, family and neighbours and those without access to the internet.
More information can be read on our news page
