When are my bins emptied?

Your bins are emptied on alternate weeks. Where there has been 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.

Christmas and new year 2018 bin collections

Collection days are changing over Christmas and new year, check the Christmas and new year bin collections leaflet and make sure you put your bins out on the revised days.

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 6.30am 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.
