Recycling and bin collections
Check your collection day or download your calendar
Your bins are emptied on the same day each week. Your recycling and garden bins are emptied one week and the non-recyclable waste bin on the following week on a 2 week cycle.
You can have up to 3 bins, a recycling, garden and other non-recyclable waste bin. Place your bins at the end of your property, beside the road on your collection day. Return them to your property as soon as possible after collection.
We wont collect additional household waste, garden waste or recycling, left beside your bin.
We are unable to empty your bins for any 1 of these reasons:
- your bin isn’t on the kerbside collection point by 7:00am on the day of collection
- the bin lid cannot be closed. It must be closed so the collection crew can attach the bin onto the vehicle safely for emptying
- the wrong bin was presented on the wrong day
- the bin is too heavy
- there is non-recyclable waste in the recycling bin
- we cannot access your property, for example, due to road works – for this reason we will try again within five days
Report a missed collection
You can tell us about a missed bin one working day after the missed collection. We will aim to respond within 5 working days.

Additional garden waste bins
We offer one free garden waste bin to all residents. However, we do realise that some households have larger gardens and would like more than one garden bin for their needs. For an annual charge of £50 we can provide you with an additional garden waste bin.
This charge is billed for the period 1 August – 31 July each year. No concession is given for joining part way through the scheme. To arrange for an additional garden waste bin to be delivered to your home, contact us on 0300 123 5011 where your request can be processed and payment taken.
Alternatively, you can consider home composting.
We understand that larger families may need some extra space for their refuse and recycling.

Bulky waste collection
We will collect bulky waste for a charge, see the bulky waste collection page.
Difficulty putting out your bins
If you have difficulty moving your bins you can be considered for an assisted collection service.

Assisted collections will happen on the next bin collection, as long as the collection isn't on the same day you applied.
