Updates about changes to rubbish and recycling collections as a result of COVID-19 (coronavirus).

Waste storage

In order to protect our waste collection crews and combat the spread of infection, anyone who feels ill at home (whether diagnosed with COVID-19 or not) should:

  • place all waste - including recycling - in their refuse (black) bin
  • this should be double-bagged, making sure the bags are securely tied
  • wait at least 72 hours before placing it out for collection.


Please do not leave any sacks next to your bin.


Bulky waste collections

Our bulky waste collection service is available, however we are unable to collect in-house collections.

Any items for collection must be placed outside the property before our contractors arrive.


Litter picking equipment

We have resumed issuing litter picking equipment under the adopt a road scheme.  We ask that any events organised under this scheme follow all government guidance on social distancing and group numbers relevant at the time the event takes place.

If you want to do an individual litter pick, please follow the guidance on the keep britain tidy website.
