Latest Information on Waste Collection Services

Garden Waste Collections resuming w/c Monday 29th November

We are pleased to announce that the Garden Waste Service will resume next week, as per our normal scheduled collections. Please note that there may be some delays as we have had previously, but we will be able to catch up should this occur. If you are due a green bin collection next week, please ensure that your bin is presented from 7am on your scheduled collection day - and continue to leave this presented until a collection is completed.

Residents who were affected by the service suspension (w/c 22nd November) will receive a collection w/c Monday 6th December. Once again, please ensure that your bin is presented from 7am on your scheduled collection day until a collection is completed.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Advice for households affected by Coronavirus:

  • Make sure all contaminated waste items are placed into a plastic bag and tied at the top
  • Please double bag for 72 hours in a place that cannot be accessed by pets or people
  • After 72 hours put the bag in your refuse wheeled bin. Do not put the bag on the kerbside where people could have contact with it

 

What you can do

To help the crews, please make sure your bins are presented on time before 7am and make sure they are visible and accessible. This is especially important as the crews emptying your bin(s) may not be the regular crew and therefore may not be as familiar with the round. Please also park considerately to ensure that the refuse vehicles can gain access.

We would like to ask residents to clean their bin handles after touching them as a precaution. We would also recommend that residents wash their hands before and after moving bins.

Thank you for your understanding during this difficult time. We aim to keep as many of our services running as possible, especially essential services such as the collection of refuse and recycling. However, our top priority is the health and wellbeing of all residents and staff.

Please check the website if you have you have any queries about our services as regular updates will be made.
