Green bin collections: service suspended

Published on Tuesday, 20th July 2021

green bin service suspension

The green bin collection service will be suspended this week (19/07/21-25/07/21) due to staff shortages from sickness and isolation requirements.

We are asking those customers affected to please utilise the household recycling centres where possible.

Unfortunately, a number of sickness cases and isolation requirements in the refuse and cleansing operational team at NBBC has led to the need to suspend the green bin collection service this week. Green bin collections will not take place from Monday 19th July to Sunday 25th July. We anticipate that the service will continue from next week, allowing normal scheduled collections to take place from Monday 26th - we will, however, confirm this when possible.

A discount on next years’ service is being considered for those affected by the service suspension and details of this will be confirmed in due course.

As we will not be able to carry out these collections at a later time, whilst continuing to work on scheduled services; those affected by this weeks’ suspension will need to wait until their next scheduled collection for their bin to be emptied - or take their waste to a household recycling centre.

Use of household recycling centre for garden and food waste is free for householders in Nuneaton and Bedworth. Booking a slot at either of the two sites available to use is easy and can be done online –

We will not be able to take additional side waste and so ask that any green waste that can’t fit in to your bin is kept or taken to the household recycling centre. We are asking that those who were due a green bin collection this week, please take their bins back in to properties until their next scheduled collection to avoid obstruction to path users.

We would like to offer our sincere apologies for the inconvenience the suspension may cause and thank those affected for their understanding and patience at this time.
