Bin collection days

If you live in a house or converted flat, your:

  • household grey bins are collected weekly
  • recycling brown bins are collected fortnightly
  • your green bin is collected fortnightly (when the scheme is active) if you’ve signed up for our green garden waste service

Make sure your bins are placed outside by your boundary by 6am on the day of collection.

Presenting your bins for collection

To make sure your bins are emptied:

  • put all your rubbish inside your wheelie bin - the lid must close
  • excess recyclable material will only be collected if placed next to your brown bin in clear bin bags (not carrier bags)
  • cardboard will only be collected if tied together and placed next to your brown bin
  • don't put the wrong materials in your bin - check our guidance on what goes in your bins
  • put your bins outside by 6am on the day of collection
  • only place bins on the street if you don’t have a front garden or drive


Missed collections

If your bin collection was missed you can report it and book another collection from 10pm on the collection day until 6pm the following working day.
