Collection days & bank holidays
Please leave your refuse and recycling on the edge of your property by 7am (as collection times can vary) and no earlier than the night before.
Revised collection days for Bank and Public holidays
For single bank holidays, such as those in May and August, all collections (including clinical waste) will be one day later than usual, for example, Monday collections on Tuesday and Friday collections on Saturday.
There are no garden waste collections in the two weeks following Christmas. There is no garden waste collection service for a two week period from Monday 28 December 2015, recommencing on Monday 11 January 2016.
