What goes in my bin, box or sack?

Garden waste

To allow us to manage our resources during this challenging time we have taken the difficult decision to postpone the start of the garden waste collection service.

We will be moving the resources that we would have used to provide the garden waste service to support the continuation of our normal refuse and recycling services.

We are currently looking to delay the start of the service until after Easter - but as this is a fast moving situation we will review this nearer the time.

We have temporarily postponed the replacement of green wheelie bins. This is to prioritise the recycling and refuse bins.

Find further information about waste and recycling during Covid-19 here.

All containers must be out presented at the edge of your property by 7.00am on your scheduled collection day and marked with your house number/name. Please collect your containers as soon as possible after collection to prevent them from getting lost.
