Changes To Your Bin Collections
We've moved to an alternate weekly collection. Your information pack will confirm your new collection dates.
In April 2017 we introduced a new waste and recycling service, which means a change in how often we collect your bins.
Big Bin and Little Bin collections
As part of the new service, your Big Bin (recycling) and Little Bin (rubbish) will be collected on alternate weeks.
You will still get a weekly collection: Big Bin (recycling) one week and your Little Bin (rubbish) the next.
Improved food waste collection service
We improved the weekly food waste collection service by offering a larger 23 litre food waste container, which we will collect every week. You can still use your 12 litre food waste container, if you prefer.
What you can do
Make the most of the food waste service
Over 30,000 households already use the food waste scheme. Food waste is collected weekly and the new, enhanced, service gives you a choice in the size of food container.
Ask for an extra recycling bin
You can apply for an extra recycling bin if you need more space to recycle
Ask for an assessment for an extra rubbish bin
You can ask for an assessment for an additional rubbish bin if you have:
- five or more permanent occupants in your household
- two or more children in nappies
- a medical condition that generates extra waste.
