Check your bin day

Due to a national shortage of HGV drivers, the Council’s bin collection rounds are under unusually high pressure.

Priority black bin and orange recycling bins will continue to be collected as normal, while residents will experience a delay to their green garden waste bin collection.

While green bin collections do finish for winter at the end of November, crews will be continuing collecting into December if necessary to ensure everyone receives their final collection of the year.

If your green bin collection is missed, please leave it out in a safe area and we will collect it as soon as we can.

Thank you for your patience.

Find out your bin collection dates and when to put your bin out.

Bins are collected on an alternate weekly basis:

  • one week we collect your black bin for general waste
  • the following week we collect your orange bin for recycling and green bin for garden waste

Garden waste collections are suspended over winter between 1 December and 1 March each year.

Collection schedules may be different if you live in a flat or apartment with shared bins.
