If we don't manage to complete a scheduled bin collection and the whole street's affected you don’t need to contact us. We'll try to arrange a re-scheduled collection and this will be listed below. We update the list at the end of each day. 

If a re-scheduled collection date isn't listed by the day after your bin should have been collected, or we don't collect it on the date stated below, you can report a missed bin online.

Leaving extra side waste out with your bin

We're sorry, but we can't take any side waste that doesn't fit in your grey bin. We can take extra brown bin recycling (plastic and tins) if it's in a bin liner next to your bin, but all glass must be placed within your bin. Any additional paper or cardboard can be left next to your blue bin; please tear it into smaller pieces and place it inside one small or medium-sized box. You can leave this box next to your bin on collection day. The box must be small enough to fit back inside the bin as the crew will re-fill and re-empty your bin for you. Please only put this out on the morning of your collection and only when the weather is dry.

Green bin collections suspended

We've made the difficult decision to temporarily suspend green bin (garden waste) collections from Tuesday 27 July 2021. Like many other councils who are taking this step, we currently have increasing numbers of staff off work with positive COVID-19 cases and isolations, and need to focus on emptying general waste and recycling bins. Read more about the suspension of green bin collections. 

If you can, please dispose of your green waste at one of our household waste recycling centres.
