Collection days

If you know your collection day and zone you can download a collection calendar using the links on this page.

Alternatively you can use our search facility to find out what day and zone your street is in  and then download your collection calendar from there - just click on the link below and enter your address details.  

Please note: This search is for kerbside properties only. If you live in a block, please see our recycling from your flat page. If you live in a flat about shops please see our flats above shops page.


If you live in a house

Individual houses, including houses of multiple occupancy, house conversions and flats of up to six properties may use the services designed for houses.

We provide a weekly collection of rubbish, recycling box, paper and food waste for every home. Plastics and garden waste are collected on alternate weeks.

Our crews operate between 7am and 5pm on collection day. If you believe your collection has been missed we advise where possible not to report missed collections until after 5pm.

Every household is sent a collection calendar which shows your collection day and zone together with collection dates relevant to your road. If you're not sure of this, select the link below to find out your collection day.

If you live in a flat

You may have communal bins for your waste and recycling. Email us for details of your collection day.

Bank holidays

Your collection day will normally be one day later during a bank holiday week. Please check your calendar carefully for collection days over the bank holidays.
