Four Day Collection Week
Find out your new collection day using our A-Z of Roads
Changes to Collection Days
A change over from a five day collection week to a four day collection week (Tuesday to Friday) has now been phased in, alongside the introduction of a new box for recycling paper and card.
The recycling service for the new paper and card collections will be rolled out to communal blocks of flats at a later date. Residents in communal blocks of flats should continue to use their pink sacks for paper and card until notified otherwise.
Changes to collection times
The timing of your collection rounds may also have changed, and this may mean earlier or later collections for residents.
All collections are expected to be carried out between 7am and 5.30pm however due to operational reasons some collections may be later in the day.
Please continue to put your recycling and waste out by 7am on your collection day, continue to present on the edge of your property and do not report it as a missed collection until the following day.
Order of collection
Black sacks and blue food waste bins will be collected together in one lorry where they they are stored separately.
Pink sacks and the paper and card will be collected in a different lorry. These lorries have split backs in order to keep different sorts of waste separate and prevent contamination.
These vehicles may start collections in different locations and, as such, your recycling and waste may be collected at different times.
