Useful Information

Bank Holiday collections 

All waste and recycling collections are a day later than usual during a Bank Holiday week (check for Christmas period).  If you are unsure of your collection date, please use the postcode checker above for your collection calendar.  

Garden waste collections update

During Covid 19, the time of your collection may change, as some routes have support vehicles to assist with collections.  Please ensure your bin is placed out for collection by 7am on the day of your collection (or the night before).

Check your collection dates using the postcode check above.

To ensure that all collections take place and to protect staff; please don’t put out any additional waste beside your bin. Please keep hold of any excess garden waste until your next collection.

Only put garden waste in your garden waste wheeled bin - no household waste, soil or other waste products. Please do not overload the wheeled bin - if crews are struggling to move it then we may not be able to load it to the recycling vehicle due to vehicle lifting restrictions.

Collection calendars

Collection days have not changed, so please just continue to place your recycling and refuse containers out for emptying on your usual day/s (before 7am) or check your collection day/s using the address search box above for any changes over holiday periods.

Recycling collections (green box and green bags) 

Please see our how to recycle guide for which items you can place into your recycling containers.

Gull-proof reusable sack (weekly collection)

We will only collect rubbish that is contained within your gull-proof sack. Please do not place any additional waste beside your gull-proof sack.
