Bin Collections

Coronavirus (COVID-19): change to service

We are still collecting your little (household waste), big (recycling) and food waste bins as normal. However, on advice from the government regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19), we need you to take extra precautions with your waste to protect others.

See further information about changes to services.


We collect rubbish, food waste and recycling from your home. You can also arrange collections for large household items that don’t fit in your bins. If you live in a flat, you may share communal bins with other residents.
