Your bin collection days

Changes have been made to our waste collection services.

We have introduced a garden waste collection service (brown bins) and changed some of the collection days for refuse (green bins) and recycling (blue bins).

Please put your postcode into the bin collection search to find out what day your bin/s will be collected. Please note: if you have a brown bin for garden waste, this may or may not be collected on the same day as your green and blue bin.

Please ensure that your bins are at the edge of your property no later than 5.30am on the day of your collection, as times will vary. The collection times range from 5.30am to 4.30pm each day.

Garden waste is no longer allowed in the refuse (green) bin as the cost of waste disposal is greater than the cost of its collection, so it is essential that we all divert as much waste from our green bins as possible.

Soil/peat must not be placed into the green or brown bin as the bins will be too heavy to empty. (if bins are too heavy the bin men will leave them)

If you have any questions about the changes to the waste collection services please see the 'frequently asked questions' document below or contact our customer services team on 01205 314200.
