We would like to reassure you that we are doing everything possible to continue providing our waste and recycling service. However, the situation is constantly changing and you may experience some disruption over the coming weeks and months.

We will be updating the following information on a regular basis so please check back…

Kerbside Bin Collections

We are currently emptying all bins as normal.

Due to some planned operational changes, the bin reminders have been paused.  If you are unsure which bin is due to be emptied this week please check online.

Feeling unwell? Double bag your waste to help keep us all safe

Help us to stop the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) and keep our waste collection teams safe.

The Government is advising that anyone who feels unwell or is self-isolating should take extra care with their personal waste: Personal waste includes used tissues and disposable cleaning cloths/wipes.

Once used please throw these items away in disposable rubbish bags, these bags should be placed into a second bag, tied securely and kept separate from other waste and away from people who are not isolating.

Please keep these bags aside for at least 72 hours before putting them into your usual black wheelie bin.

People without wheelie bins who use black bags for their rubbish should follow the same advice about double bagging, separation and keeping the waste inside for 72 hours.

Recycling, household and garden waste can be placed in your usual bins.

Household Waste Recycling Centres

In line with Government’s instruction to stop all non-essential movement, we’ve closed all our Household Waste Sites until further notice.

Help us protect your family and stop the spread of coronavirus by taking your waste home and not visiting these sites until the pandemic has ended.
