Black Bins

From week commencing 15 June and 22 June we will resume our usual fortnightly collection of your black bin. This means that from these dates, the weekly collection of houshold waste will stop.

Use our handy postcode checker at the top of the page to find your bin collection calendar.

Please place your black bin out by 7am on your usual collection day.

No side waste will be collected.

Food waste

Your kerbside food waste container is collected every week and should be placed at the kerb by 7am on regular collection days.

Brown Bins

You require a garden waste permit for the collection of your garden waste. To register and pay for your permit please follow the link on the left.

Please note, the fulfilment company responsible for the processing, printing and distribution of garden waste permits has informed us that they are operating with a reduced work force during the covid-19 pandemic.

We are in regular dialogue with the company and have their assurance that they are trying to keep delivery times for garden waste permits below 14 days.

We apologise if you experience any inconvenience whilst waiting for your garden waste permit. 

Brown bins with permits should be placed out fortnightly on your normal recycling collection day.

Use our handy postcode checker at the top of the page to find your bin collection calendar.

Brown Bins (garden waste) without a permit will not be collected.
