Missed bin collections

Apologies: Some scheduled bin collections have been delayed due to unforeseen circumstances caused by our waste and recycling contractor experiencing resource issues.

Collection teams will be working on Saturday 25 June in an attempt to clear some of the missed collections - and we're working with the contractor to resolve all remaining issues as quickly as possible. 

The situation will be reviewed on Monday (27th) and every effort will be made to clear any backlog. A temporary suspension has been put on container and liner deliveries to enable the Saturday collections, but these will resume from Monday.

If your collection has been missed please report it to us and leave your container(s) at the edge of your property until collected.

If you have been missed and your next scheduled collection is due to take place in the next few days your missed container may be emptied at that time. Waste and recycling can also be taken to one of the household waste recycling centres across the district.
