Bins update for May: recycling collections will be reintroduced for green and brown bins.

The Council is able to reinstate these collections because staffing levels have increased since the initial lockdown was announced, however they are not yet at a level to allow the resuming of normal service.

Here is how the updated weekly collection cycle will work for May:

  • W/C Mon 4 May – green (plastic, cans and bottles) and brown (garden and food) bin collections on your normal collection day.
  • W/C Mon 11 May – grey (non-recyclable) bin collection on your normal collection day.
  • W/C Mon 18 May – grey (non-recyclable) bin collection on your normal collection day.
  • W/C Mon 25 May – green (plastic, cans and bottles) and brown (garden and food) bin collections on your normal collection day.

The teams will be out collecting bins on the May bank holidays (8 and 25 May).

Blue bin collections will not be reinstated at this stage.

Any further updates will be added to this webpage and Council social media accounts.
