Find your bin day

Unfortunately due to essential maintenance many forms and applications on our website will be unavailable from 9.00am - 2.00pm on Saturday 19th January. This includes our My Account portal and all application forms, all payment forms, the planning search and interactive map, our ModernGov councillor app and the bin day checker.

Sorry for any inconvenienced caused, but please bear with us whilst we carry out this work.

Real Christmas trees can be cut up and included in the brown bin. If your tree is less than 5 foot tall, it can be placed next to the bin on collection day.

You can recycle Christmas cards in your grey bin as along as there is no glitter, ribbons or batteries on them.

Paper gift wrap can be recycled in your clear bag. 

To find when your next bin collection is due please type your address in the box below and select it from the dropdown list.

Normal service

Bins are usually emptied on an alternate week cycle. Your grey bin, brown bin and clear bags are emptied one week and your blue lidded bin the following week.

It is against the law to leave your bins on the pavement after they have been emptied.
