Rubbish and recycling update
NEW Garden Waste Calendars 2014/15
If you subscribe to the Garden Waste collection service you will shortly receive a NEW collection calendar in the post to take you from 24 November 2014 to December 2015.
Alternatively you can download a copy of the calendar. Just enter your address on our 'When is my bin day?' page.
Please be sure to check your calendar, and make sure that your bin is at the collection point by 7am on the day of collection. You can report missed bins online by 5pm the following day.
Calendars should arrive between 13 November and 17 November.
Please note: for safety, collection on busy main roads will be made from one side of the road at a time to avoid operatives crossing and re-crossing the road. If you see a vehicle collecting on the opposite side of the road please do not think you have been missed out.
If you are an existing customer it is likely that your collection day will have changed, please refer to your new calendar for details.
Day changes have been necessary to include 4,000 new Garden Waste customers on to the scheme. We apologise in advance for any inconvenience that this may cause. The changes to collection rounds will deliver a more efficient service to new and existing customers.
