Your new recycling and waste collection day
Your new collection day has come into place. From 4 November 2018, all your recycling and waste bins will be collected on the same day.
Your blue recycling and black refuse bins are collected weekly, and your green garden waste bin is collected fortnightly. Whilst the frequency of your collections will not be affected, we ask that you put your bins out for collection only once they are full to help us run the service as efficiently as possible.
If you live in a house, converted house or a property with five or less flats, you will have received a leaflet including a collection calendar through your letterbox. This calendar will show you which weeks your green garden waste bin is collected, as well as the changes to collection dates over the festive period. The time of day your bin collection takes place at may change, so please make sure you put your bin out for collection at the boundary of your property by 6am. Please keep your calendar as it includes changes to your festive recycling and waste collection dates.
A small percentage of households will have more than one collection day
If you live on an A road (including the A1, A41 and A406) you will have received a letter, rather than a leaflet, to notify you of your separate collection days. For more information, please see our Frequently Asked Questions
If you are still unsure of your new collection day you can check by putting in your postcode here.
