Website survey

We want your help with improving our website so it is easier to use, and provides the information that residents need. Help us by filling in this short survey.

Garden and food waste are now collected separately. You will receive two collections on the same day, one for garden waste and one for food waste. Collections can take place from 6:30am up to 2pm on your collection day. Find your collection day.

If your garden or food waste is not collected, but the containers are presented correctly and not contaminated, please leave the containers out for collection and we will return. If after 48 hours (including Saturday) we have not returned, please report a missed collection.
