Waste collection services update

All services are currently operating normally, although unusually high levels of waste have resulted in some collections being slightly delayed.

  • communal Services (refuse and recycling) are generally operating normally, but high volumes of waste have meant that small numbers of collections may be carried into the following day
  • refuse & recycling kerbside services (green and blue bins) are operating as normal and collecting on the usual scheduled dates
  • organic waste collections (brown food and garden waste bins) are operating as normal and collecting on the usual scheduled dates


The use of some temporary crews has resulted in a higher level of missed collections than usual over the last 1 to 2 weeks.  Please report a missed collection on the reporting a missed collection page if your collection has not been completed by the end of the working day when it was due (ie after 4pm).
