Why are some bin collection days changing?

As the borough grows, it is important that our bin collection routes remain as efficient as possible.

By making changes to approximately 40% of the borough’s household bin collection days, we have ensured that fuel and resources will be used in the best possible way and that the numbers of houses we collect from each day are balanced across the two-week schedule.

Will I receive notification of changes?

You will receive a postcard from early September advising you of any changes to your bin collection day.

  • Everyone will receive a postcard whether their collection day is changing or not
