Green waste collections suspended

We're suspending green waste collections from Tuesday 27 July 27 until Tuesday 31 August 31 due to staff shortages. You can book an appointment to take your green waste to the Household Waste Recycling Centre if it needs to be collected before then.

Keep our crews safe

Please help us to keep our waste and recycling crews safe and disinfect your bin handles.

If anyone in your house has symptoms of coronavirus, you must bag your waste and wait 72 hours before putting it into your refuse (black) bin. Put your waste in a bag and tie it securely, then put it in another bag and tie that securely too. Wait 72 hours before putting it in your bin. This is especially important if the waste includes things like tissues used by the person with symptoms.

General reminders

Don't forget, your bin must be out for collection by 7am on the day it's being collected. If your bin isn't out by 7am, it might not be collected. It can be tempting to wait and put it out just before the time you think it's normally collected, but our schedules can change, and you'll be left with your bin uncollected.
