There are no changes to bin collections in County Durham during the Bank Holiday week (w/c 29 May). Please place your rubbish, recycling (bin/box) or garden waste bins out at the kerbside for collection as normal, by 7.00am, on your usual collection day.
If you need clinical waste removed from your house, we offer a free collection service for its safe removal and disposal.
Step 1: You should ask for a collection via your district nurse, doctor or GP.
Step 2: Once we receive a request from them, we will tell you your collection day, time and where it will be picked up from.
Step 3: The waste should be placed in an appropriate bag or container and left at the pick-up point.
