Bin collections due to weather

Information on bin collections following the heavy snow.

Bin collections (Tuesday 27 February - Friday 2 March)

The severe weather made it particularly difficult for our bin crews to carry out their rounds and, as a result, we were unable to collect from a number of areas.

If your bin was not collected

If your bin was not collected on the usual day, it will be emptied a fortnight after your missed collection (week commencing 12 March). We will also pick up additional waste with that collection if your bin is full. Please leave any additional rubbish or recycling in plastic bags next to your bin for collection.

Our usual policy is to collect recycling in clear plastic bags. However, on this occasion only (week commencing 12 March) we will accept additional recycling in any plastic bag.
