What to do on collection day 

On your collection day, please have your bin(s) out at the edge of your property by 6am, unless otherwise agreed with us.

In some situations, we may ask for a household to leave their bin(s) behind their gate. To make sure collections are safe, we cannot cross a cattle grid to collect bin(s) or any other containers. 

We will not be able to collect your bin if: 

We can only collect what fits in your garden waste bin. Garden waste left next to your bin will not be collected.

Assisted collections, help putting your bins out

If you are unable to put out your household waste to the edge of your property due to a disability, illness or injury, or another issue, you can request an assisted collection
