Useful Information

Refuse and recycling collections update

Like other organisations and businesses, Covid-19 is impacting on our service delivery and increasing numbers of staff are self-isolating.

We are working hard to maintain services. We have redeployed staff from other areas to support critical services and have taken the decision to suspend all new bookings for bulky waste. We will honour those already booked-in.

The safety of the public and our staff is our top priority, so please understand that we’re doing all we can to continue to provide the best and safest service we can during exceptional circumstances.

If you have a scheduled collection, please support us by continuing to leave out your refuse/recycling out for collection.

Please note that there are no scheduled garden waste collections until mid-February.

Please continue to check our website and social media channels for updates.

Collection calendars 2021

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.  We cannot return if you miss the collection.

Bank Holiday collections 

Waste and recycling collections are a day later than your usual collection day during a Bank Holiday week (collecting Tuesday through to Saturday).  Exceptions to this are at Easter and Christmas.  If you are unsure of your collection date, please use the postcode checker above for your collection calendar.  

Garden waste collections update

Winter Garden waste collections are every six weeks December to February.  Use the postcode finder above to check your collection date if unsure.

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). Please do not line your bin with black liners/sacks as we cannot recycle these!  Thank you.

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.

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)

Please bag all your refuse into a refuse sack(s) and place the sack(s) into your reusable gull-proof sack.

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.
