Advice for missed scheduled collections

Last updated: Friday 30 September 2022 

Due to coronavirus infections and other illness affecting our waste crews and wider operational workforce, please be aware that there may be unavoidable delays to scheduled collections at this time.

We are doing everything we can to keep collections on track and if collections are missed to return as soon as possible. Please bear with us at this difficult time. 

If a collection is missed in your street, leave your bin out so that we can empty it as soon as we can. We will come back the next working day or as soon as possible afterwards.

If we have any advice specific to collections in a particular street(s), this will be provided below. Thank you for your patience.
