Backlog of bin collections

What you can do if your household bins have not been collected

We apologise that a small number of people are being affected by the temporary backlog in rubbish collection, particularly in the West of the city.

Measures have been put in place to clear the backlog and we ask residents leave their bins out for collection. 

We are confident that it will be cleared by the end of the weekend (1 May 2011) and we apologise once again.
