Rubbish and recycling

We provide regular rubbish and recycling collections, local recycling centres and services including clinical waste, large item and assisted bin collections.

All waste and recycling collection services are running as normal. However, we are aware of some delays to mixed dry recycling collections, following the introduction of new services. If your blue-lidded bin or black box has not been emptied on your new scheduled collection day, please leave your containers out and our contractors will visit as soon as they can.

If you suspect you have COVID-19, put waste tissues into a plastic bag and tie it when full. You can also put disposable cloths or wipes, used to clean hard surfaces such as kitchen worktops and bathrooms, in this bag. Once the bag is full, double bag it in a second bin bag and tie it up. Store the bags for 72 hours (three days) and then please place them in your normal wheeled bin. If you don't receive a wheeled bin collection, please make sure a council-issued bag label is placed on the outside of the double-bagged waste. Please see the latest Defra guidance on cleaning your home and disposing of waste.

Following the government guidance on staying at home, all household recycling centres are now closed until further notice.
