General waste and recycling collections are resuming today (Thursday, 15 December). 

Please bear with us though – many roads are still very icy. 

Our collection crews will try to reach today’s scheduled properties and make a start on those that were missed earlier this week.  

  • If our collection crews don’t get to you today, please leave your refuse or recycling bins out and they’ll try to catch up with missed collections as soon as possible.

  • Crews will be working on both Saturday and Sunday to catch up – so leave your bins out over the weekend if they’re not collected sooner.

  • Missed food caddy collections for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday will be caught up on their usual collection days next week.  

  • Unfortunately, the garden waste service will be suspended this week to allow our crews time to complete the catch-up. Side waste will be accepted when the service resumes. We apologise for any inconvenience. 

Side waste will be accepted:

  • Green bin: up to two black bin bags of refuse side waste will be collected  

  • Blue bin: recycling side waste should be placed in a cardboard box next to your blue bin. If you don’t have a box available, place it in an untied carrier bag (please do not tie the bag because the crews need to check the contents).
