Potential disruption to waste and recycling collections this week


Unfortunately, due to the volume of waste and recycling presented, and staff availability issues relating to the current pandemic, we may be unable to collect all waste on your scheduled collection day this week.


Please continue to present your waste by 6am on the day of collection. However, if your waste is not collected by 10pm, please leave it out so that we can come back to you. We will return to collect the waste as soon as possible, and aim to collect within 48 hours of the planned collection date.


Thank you for your patience and understanding at this time.
