Find out when your rubbish is collected and book / sign up for bulky and garden waste collections.  Rubbish collections are for domestic households only.

All rubbish put out for collection must be contained in disposable plastic bags. Collections start from 7.00am. Please make sure your rubbish is out by this time. 

Bulky Waste

Bulky waste

We cannot take bulky waste in your rubbish collection. If it’s heavier than 25kg/50lb or longer than 1m, you can book a bulky waste collection or take it to a household waste and recycling centre.

Garden Waste

Garden waste

We cannot take garden waste in your rubbish collection. Find out about our fortnightly garden waste collection service, how much it costs and when your collection day is.

Clinical Waste Collection

Clinical waste and sharps

Clinical waste bags and sharps bins are not collected with normal household rubbish. A separate vehicle collects them on a specific round so you need to tell us if you require this service.
