Bin collections, garden waste and HWRCs (tips) (updated 26 March)


Rubbish and recycling collections remain as normal, while our tips are closed until further notice.

If you are homeworking, please park appropriately and leave access for bin crews to get lorries into estates and down small roads.

Bulky waste collections (updated 26 March)

We are no longer taking new bulky waste collections at the moment.

Garden waste (updated 24 March)

So that we can support rubbish and recycling collections at this time and over the busy Easter period, our 2020 garden waste collection scheme will be delayed and wil now start on Tuesday 28 April. You will still receive all 17 collections, with the final collection now scheduled for Friday 18 December.

HWRCs (tips) (updated 24 March)

Following the latest national guidance on coronavirus, all of our Household Waste Recycling Centres are now closed until further notice.

Rubbish and recycling

Rubbish and recycling collections remain as normal, - as usual, you should put your bins out for collection at 7.00am on collection day but please be patient with bin crews during this difficult time.
