What day is my bin collected?

Search by street name to find out which day your bin is normally uplifted. You can also download the 2015 bin collection calendar. Please put out your bins at their usual collection point before 7am on the specified collection day.  

What goes in your bins?

Most households now have separate bins for recycling, glass and normal household waste. To find out what goes in each bin, please see links to the bins on the right and the do's and don'ts. Alternatively, you can take your garden waste to your waste and recycling site or we can give you information on a range of discounted composting products.

If your bin hasn't been collected

There could be a number of reasons why your bin hasn't been collected. For more information on what you should do, see Missed bins.

If you require additional waste bags

Some properties have waste bags rather than bins. If you require an extra supply of bags please contact Waste Services on 0303 123 1020. They will be provided free of charge.
