Bins and recycling

Service update

Garden waste is now collected every four weeks. Check your collection dates here.

The garden waste collection service does not operate for a four-week period around Christmas. This happens every year to account for the extra Christmas waste. This year there are no garden waste collections between 18 December - 16 January. Garden waste collections will resume on Monday 17 January 2022.

Crews are doing their best to get to all properties on their scheduled collection days. However, they are still under pressure and may need to catch up on subsequent days.

If your garden waste is not collected on your scheduled day, please take the following steps:

  • Check the missed collection report as the crew may already be aware that you have been missed. If your road is listed, you don’t need to take any action and a crew will be back to collect your bin. You can see the revised collection date on the report.
  • If your road is not listed, log a missed collection within 24 hours of your scheduled collection day.
