Bin collections update

BINS UPDATE - 22 JANUARY | Increased and significant Covid related staff absences means our crews will be focusing on household waste collections as a priority at the moment.

Household waste rounds will continue as normal, but for the foreseeable future food waste collections will only take place alongside the household waste rounds.

Garden waste collections are suspended, together with food waste collections that would usually take place alongside garden waste rounds.

Recycling collections will take place where possible. Please leave out your recycling as crews will try to pick up recycling where they can once they have completed household waste rounds. However, if the crew have not visited by the end of the week that your recycling collection is due please put your recycling bins back in until your next recycling collection.

Additional recycling can be left out so long as it is presented according to the guidance on this webpage.

Christmas trees will be collected once garden waste rounds restart.

Bulky waste collections and bin deliveries are also suspended, but trade waste collections continue.

The Household Waste and Recycling Centres remain open 7 days a week. Residents can visit these sites free of charge to dispose of any waste or recycling that cannot be stored safely at home.

We apologise for this unavoidable situation and thank you for your patience and understanding.

Due to the continuing impacts of Covid on our crews, scheduled garden waste collections are still suspended today and there will be no food waste collections on garden waste rounds. Our apologies.
