Delays to bin collections

As a result of national driver shortages and COVID-related absences, we are experiencing delays to a small number of bin collections.

Staff are working hard to collect your bins as soon as possible and collections will continue over the weekend. If your rubbish and/or recycling hasn't been collected on your usual collection day, please leave your bins out – we will get to you as soon as possible. There is no need to report a missed collection.

Thank you for your patience and to our frontline staff for their hard work in challenging times.
