When are my bins emptied?

Coronavirus iconDuring the current COVID-19 outbreak, we're working as hard as we can to continue to collect your waste. Please help us by remembering not to overfill your bins so they can be moved by the crews, and by not leaving side waste. Please continue to store this until your next collection.

Your bins are emptied on alternate weeks. When there is a public holiday, the collection days will be revised. To see when your bins are emptied, visit Find my nearest, enter your postcode into the Search for a location box and select your address. Your bin collection information will be in the Waste and recycling section.

Things to remember

We always try to collect your bin at a similar time each week but now and again we may have to change our rounds. You can help us by making sure that:

  • you put the right items in the right bin
  • your bin is put out by 6.15am the morning of your collection day
  • your bin is placed next to the kerb with the lid shut (if it is open it can affect the lifting machinery and it might not be emptied)
  • any recycling that will not fit in your blue bin is put in council issued blue sacks; we will collect a maximum of two.

Occasionally, the bin collections can be affected by weather.
