Which bin do I use?
We offer a range of collection services to households throughout the borough.
Each household is provided with one grey bin, one blue-lidded bin, one green-lidded bin, one kitchen caddy and one kerbside caddy. We will collect your grey and blue-lidded bins on an alternate weekly basis, your kerbside caddy on a weekly basis and your green-lidded bin fortnightly between March and November.
When are my bins collected?
Check your collection day
If you do not already have a waste collection calendar, email email@example.com and we will email or send you a copy in the post.
Please ensure that the correct bins are placed on the boundary of your property by 6.45am on the day of collection.

Industrial action is being taken by members of Unite The Union and Unison. This may affect council services over the coming weeks. Currently, bin collections are back on schedule. However, we expect them to be affected again after the bank holiday on Monday 7 May. Please refer to our website nearer the time for updates.
