Bin collections

Food waste collections temporarily suspended

Due to current reduced staffing levels separate food waste collections will be suspended from Wednesday 28 July until further notice.

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.

We are sorry for the disruption this will cause. These temporary changes mean that staffing resources can be used to focus on non-recycling waste (which includes nappy and incontinence waste collections for existing subscribers) and recycling collections. Garden waste collections are also continuing but collections are currently delayed.

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

Thank you for your patience at this time.
