Bins and recycling
Green garden bin collections paused
Due to an increase in Covid-19 related staff absences, we need to temporarily pause the green garden bin collections for a two-week period from Monday 19th July 2021 - Monday 2nd August 2021. If you cannot store green waste during this period, please use one of the city’s recycling centres.

Bank Holiday collections
We collect waste and recycling as normal on Bank Holidays. Please present your bins, bags or boxes on your regular collection day.
- Make sure all rubbish or recycling is placed inside the bin and make sure the lid is closed.
- Check what can go in each bin - we won't collect bins if they are too heavy or contain incorrect materials.
- If we've placed a sticker on your bin, it will be collected on your next scheduled collection providing you have removed the incorrect materials.
