During bad weather (such as ice and snow) collections may be affected. If this happens, we will let residents know on the front page of this website.

Please make sure:

  • The correct bins are put out by 6.30 am on the day of collection.

  • The bin lids are firmly closed.

  • The bins are placed at the nearest point to the public highway.

  • Any additional waste/recycling is placed in authorised sacks (No waste in black sacks beside or on the bin will be taken).

  • The recycling bins contain items that are recyclable, otherwise they may not be emptied and your bins may be stickered to let you know why.

If any of the above requirements are not met , your bin may not be emptied and the crew may not return for the bin.

Make sure you know what goes in your bin by checking our Getting it Right leaflet.
