When are my bins emptied?

Your bins are emptied on alternate weeks. Where there has been a public holiday, the collection days will be revised.

To see when your bins are emptied visit Find my nearest, enter your postcode into the Search for a location box and select your address. Your bin collection information will be in the Waste and recycling section.

Things to remember

We always try to collect your bin at a similar time each week but now and again we may have to change our rounds. You can help us by making sure that:

  • your bin is put out by 6.30am the morning of your collection day
  • your bin is placed next to the kerb with the lid shut (if it is open it can affect the lifting machinery and it might not be emptied)
  • any recycling that will not fit in your blue bin is put in council issued blue sacks; we will collect a maximum of two
