Coronavirus and waste collections update

Information on recycling and rubbish in relation to the coronavirus.

Kerbside bin collections

Important collection service change: From Monday 30 March, residents will need to ensure that waste/recycling is out on the kerbside for collection from 6.00am. This is a temporary measure during the Coronavirus pandemic.

  • Please be reminded that tissues, kitchen roll or toilet paper used to blow nose etc should be disposed of in your BLACK BAGS only. DO NOT place these items in your green bags as they cannot be recycled and could also expose council staff undertaking regular quality control checks to the pathogen.
  • Please also follow the government advice below on disposing of tissues if you are showing possible symptoms or self-isolating with others:
    'Personal waste (such as used tissues) and disposable cleaning cloths can be stored securely within disposable rubbish bags. These bags should be placed into another bag, tied securely and kept separate from other waste. This should be put aside for at least 72 hours before being put in your usual external household waste bin.'

Replacement recycling bags

All libraries and housing offices are closed and other locations may be affected.

Replacement green bags and food liners can continue to be requested at the kerbside using the reorder tag. Many thanks for your patience.
