Due to unsafe weather conditions, there were no waste and recycling collections on Monday 8th February 2021.  Partial service resumed on Tuesday 9th February 2021 but many roads continue to be inaccessible. Households are asked to take back in any uncollected waste, and present it on their next scheduled collection day for the relevant recycling week.

If your property was a Green box and Black Bin/Sack collection, week commencing 8 February:

  • Food waste, plastic and tin recycling, and black bins – should be put out on the next scheduled collection day week beginning 22 February.
  • Recognising additional black bin waste will be created, residents can put out up to three extra bagsof side waste for collection.

If your property was a Red box collection, week commencing 8 February:

  • Food waste and paper/cardboard recycling – should be put out on the next scheduled collection day week beginning 22 February.
  • No additional side waste will be allowed for black bins as these collections were unaffected.

The page below will be updated if there are any further delays.  Apologies for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience.
