Rubbish and recycling
Check your bin collection days by entering your address or postcode into our online mapping service:
Refuse collection takes place throughout the year except for Christmas Day and New Year's Day. Services are as normal on all other public holidays.
If your bin hasn't been collected on your collection date, it will be because
- we've missed your bin
- your bin wasn't at the collection point by 7am, or
- your bin had unsuitable items in it.
If we didn't collect your bin because you have incorrect items in it, please remove these items and present on your next collection day for that colour of bin.
If we have missed you bin in error, please let us know.
You can call us on 0300 300 0300 or fill out this online form:
Please remember that collections take place from 7am right up to 6.30pm.
