COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

This is affecting us all at work and at home. We’re working hard to keep services running and will focus our efforts on the most critical elements. In doing so disruption to many services is likely.

Bin collections

In the light of the challenges raised by Coronavirus, our waste and recycling service are working hard to ensure the service continues with minimal disruption.

So, if you have had your bin collection missed, please leave it out. Our crews will be returning to pick them up throughout the week and into the weekend. Thank you for your patience.

Brown-lidded (garden waste) bins

In order to allow our staff to observe social distancing, we have taken the decision to suspend garden waste collections for 2 weeks. We will keep this under constant review but from Tuesday 7 April we ask people not to put their garden waste out for collection. 

Bulky waste

Our bulky waste collections service is currently suspended. Customers who have already paid for a collection will get a full refund.
