When are my bins collected?

Please see the link on the left for the daily schedule of bin/bag collections, by street name.

There are two parts indicating when you should put your bins/bags out for collection:

  1. What is your bin/bag collection day?
  2. Which recycling week applies?

The links will provide you with this information:

  • bin collection days.  This will tell you which day of the week your bins/ bags will be collected and which recycling calendar applies to your address
  • recycling calendar week 1 or week 2.  This shows you, highlighted, which weeks to put out your recycling bins (your black bin goes out on the weeks not highlighted).
