Find your bin day

Christmas collections

Your bin day might change over Christmas due to the bank holidays. If you are affected, your revised collection day will show in red on the bin day checker.

Please note that green lidded bin collections are suspended over the Christmas period.

Normal Service

Bins are emptied on an alternate week cycle. In most cases your brown bin, green lidded bin, and red bag are emptied one week and your black bin the following week.

Help us to empty your bins

Out by 6am - In by 7pm.
It is against the law to leave your bins on the pavement after they have been emptied.
Bins will be removed and you may receive a £60 fine and have to pay to have a bin returned.

  • Check to see which bin should be put out
  • Make sure your bins can be seen where your property meets the pavement
  • Place your bins considerately so they don't block the pavement for wheelchairs and pushchairs
  • Make sure your bin lids are fully closed
  • Don't leave any extra bags of rubbish next to your bins
  • We don't empty bins containing incorrect materials
  • Don't overfill your bins - if you or we cannot move it the vehicle will be unable to lift it
  • Don't report a missed bin until after 4pm on collection day
  • Report a missed bin in 2 working days or we won't be able to come back until the next collection
