Collections of garden waste restarted on 31 August 2021 for all residents who have subscribed to the garden waste scheme.

‘Excess’ recycling will not be collected from 31 August 2021 for 3 months. If you have a wheeled bin you must contain all recycling in your bin with the lid closed. The insert must be inside the bin and will not be collected if left next to the bin. We’re sorry but any recycling next to the bin either loose or in containers will not be collected. Residents on a sack collection must contain all recycling within your blue box and 2 blue bags.

Also as a temporary emergency measure, we’re asking residents to mix their food waste in their usual waste (grey) bin or black sacks. To help prevent animals ripping open sacks in search of food waste, residents on sack rounds can put their usual food caddy out alongside their refuse sacks if they wish, but food inside the caddy does need to be contained within a sealed bag.

We apologise again for the current situation.
