Recycling bins

If you have booked for a bin or bag delivery on our website, received a reference number and have not received your bin, we would like to apologise for the delay.

We have unfortunately had a high percentage of staff off with COVID-19 or who are isolating. We are prioritising refuse collections at this time.

As soon as we have more staff available we will resume delivering booked requests.
