Rubbish and recycling update
Collection day changes from June
From 1 June your rubbish and recycling collection day and/or week may change. Your time of collection may also change so please put your bins out at the edge of your property by 7am.
You will receive a new calendar in the post before then to tell you what your collection day will be from 1 June or download it now. You can check when you next collection is online using When is my bin day?
All residents that currently receive a fortnightly refuse collection will have their refuse collected in the first week of June even if you would normally expect your recycling to be collected instead. This may mean that you get two weeks of refuse collections in a row instead of one refuse and one recycling. Please check your new calendar to see if you are affected.
Households are likely to produce more recycling during this time. You can present as much extra recycling on your first recycling collection day as long as it is in carrier bags, clear plastic bags or white bin liners. They cannot present it in black bin or garden waste bags.
Please note: this only affects rubbish and recycling collections, garden waste collections remain the same.
Why are we doing this?
Our contractor, Kier Services Ltd are making these changes to improve efficiency and accommodate hundreds of new properties that have been built.
