Black bins

Your black wheeled bin is provided for the collection of general household waste.


When to put your bin out

Use your postcode to check your collection day.

Place your bin by the kerbside for collection by 7am with the lid closed (unless you have help with collections). 

Report a missed bin collection.


Overloaded bins

Do not overload your bin, if it's too heavy it may not be emptied and you will be asked to lighten it.

Please do not put extra waste next to your black bin, as this will not be taken.  If you have extra waste you can:


New, replacement, additional or larger bin

Request a new bin or box.


Bank holidays

We empty bins on bank holidays except Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day. If your collection day is affected, we will send you details of the changes near to the time.


Flats or apartments

If you live in a flat/apartment your waste collection arrangements may differ.
