Bin Collections

If your collection was missed during the recent poor weather conditions, please be aware we will not be able to return to collect it until your next scheduled date.

You can leave a reasonable number of bags next to your purple bin on your next general waste collection day. Bags cannot be accepted with the mixed recycling bin. Only waste properly secured in bags will be accepted.

Please use a recycling centre where and when possible.

We appreciate everyone’s patience during this period, and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. The safety of our residents and staff is extremely important to us, and we hope you will understand why these decisions were made.

Good neighbours

If you have an older or less mobile relative, friend or neighbour please keep in contact with them in periods of severe weather to ensure they are all right.
