Waste/recycling collection disruptions

Page updated on: 08/08/2022

Unfortunately but inevitably a variety of issues can affect our ability to deliver waste collection services. These include the availability of staff and vehicles as well as issues affecting access. We sincerely apologise when services are disrupted and look to respond as quickly as possible.

Waste collections usually take place between 6am and 2pm, except for the hygiene and nappy waste service which is usually provided between 7am and 3pm. However, there may be occasions where we work outside these hours.

We have arranged to collect on Saturday, 13th August.

Please take in your bags or bin and place them out for collection on the evening of Friday 12th August to ensure collection takes place on Saturday.


Report missed collection

Please do not report a missed collection until after 2pm unless it is hygiene or nappy waste which is after 3pm. This is to give the crews enough time to have completed your area.
