Waste service

Our crews are clearing the backlog of missed bins caused by the weather last week. If you've had a missed collection or are due a collection, please leave your bins out on the kerbside and we'll get to them as soon as possible. We may not be able to access some streets which are still badly affected by snow but please bear with us. Thanks for your patience.

Find delays to rubbish and recycling collections

Our recycling centres are open.

The special uplift service is running and working to clear last week's backlog. There may be delays – please leave your items out for collection and we’ll get to them as soon as possible.
