How to find out when your bin is collected

Your different bins are collected on different weeks of the month. Use the Bin Collection calendar at the bottom of this page.

  • Only your brown bin is collected weekly
  • To find out the day of collection, choose your address and select the search button. The result will show street(s) with a collection day shown next to each address.
  • Select the link 'View Calendar (pdf)' to view. This will open a calendar showing the weeks when each bin and recycling container is collected.  You can also print this calendar as a reminder of when your bin is collected. 

If you are new to the area when you register for council tax you will be told the day of the week when bins are collected.

If you have questions about bin collection please contact Customer Services.
