Important Bin Collection Update

We are all working hard to continue delivering your key services wherever possible.

However, as of Monday 30 March until further notice, we will be making the following changes to your bin collections:

Food waste

Please place all food waste in your black residual waste bin.  No separate food waste collection will be carried out.

Blue Bins

If your blue bin is due to be collected from Monday 30 March to Friday 3 April it will be emptied with a non-recycling collection. No blue bins will be collected until further notice after then.

Brown Bins

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

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

We are suspending the sale of brown bin permits until further notice.

Black Bins

We will now collect your black residual waste bin every week. Please place your black bin out by 7am on your usual collection day every week. No side waste will be collected.

High Rise and Tenemental Recycling Collection Service  

The High Rise and Tenemental Recycling Collection Service is suspended until further notice.


This is a temporary change in service. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
