Please refer to your annual recycling and waste collection calendar for all of your collection dates, or simply type in your postcode in to the property search to find your collection day.

You can now print your annual recycling and waste collection calendar online, by typing your postcode in to the property search and clicking on the link to your calendar.


My bin was not emptied – what do I do?

We work really hard to ensure that your bins are collected. If there is an operational issue with the collection the crew will return as soon as is possible to try again.

If you have individual bins at your property please check your bin to see if you have a hanger left on your bin telling you why it has not collected. If you do not have a hanger or would like to contact us please call us on 023 8068 8440 after 1.30pm on your day of collection.

If you are a property with communal bins please report any non-collected bins via this form
