Other service updates

Communal bin collections

Unfortunately we are experiencing delays and disruptions to our collection service for communal rubbish bins. This is due to changes to the collection rounds that will provide efficiencies overall. We've put in extra resources to these collections and all should be cleared by the end of the week.

We're sorry for any inconvenience these changes are currently causing.

Help us improve our website

Got ten minutes to spare? We're running a quick exercise to help us organise the waste and recycling web content to make it easier to find.

Take part: navigation exercise

The exercise will run in a new window or tab. If the exercise is closed, don't worry. We'll be running further exercises over the next few weeks. Or you can contact the web team direct: Contact web services (Please don't use this link for bin queries.)
