Waste and recycling collections

We are currently experiencing delays on a number of refuse, recycling and garden waste rounds. If the whole street has been missed we will be aware and will return as soon as possible. Please leave the bins/containers out for collection.

2. Putting bins out during Covid-19

Please wash your hands before putting your bins out

In order to keep our operatives safe during Covid-19, it would be appreciated if householders wash their hands as per NHS guidance and/or wear gloves when putting out their bins and boxes for collection. This will help minimise any chance of Coronavirus cross contamination.

Please put your bins out the night before collection

To allow for social distancing at our depot, we have introduced staggered start times for our crews. Collections can now take place before 7am.

To ensure your bins and boxes are collected, please place them out the night before your scheduled collection.
