Recycling collections – Due to Covid-19, kerbside teams are short staffed, severely impacting their ability to complete collections. We have made the difficult decision to concentrate staff on essential services only. This means that we cannot return for any missed recycling collections. We will prioritise your collection on your next scheduled day.

Assisted waste collections

If you have mobility difficulties or and impairment that means you cannot carry containers to the kerbside, and there is no one in your household who can help you, we can arrange free assisted collections for recycling and refuse.

Containers will be collected from an agreed external point on the property, emptied and returned.
