Bin collection dates

Christmas and New Year bin collections

There are no changes to bin collections dates during the Christmas holidays.

Please put your bin out on your usual collection day.

For information about closures for other Council buildings and services, see Christmas and New Year closures.

Putting your bin out

  • put your bin out for collection by 7.30am
  • make sure the lid is closed (if the lid isn't closed, we will either not empty the bin or remove bags to allow the lid to close)
  • we cannot collect any extra waste alongside your bin

Once your bin has been emptied, please return your bin to your property on the same day.


Wash your hands before and after putting waste or recycling into your bin, and putting your bin in or out for collection.

Double bag all potentially infected waste (tissues, etc), and store these bags for at least 3 days before putting in your normal grey bin.


Do not put batteries in any of your bins, as they can cause a fire. See where to take batteries.
