COVID-19: Increasing pressure on waste services means possible delays. We’re working hard to collect your waste and recycling, but if we miss a collection, please bear with us as we will collect it within 48 hours.

Refuse and recycling services during Covid-19

Continuing to provide essential services

At this difficult and challenging time, we want to keep you regularly updated on the changes to refuse and recycling services that you may experience over the coming weeks. We also need your help where possible.

The council and our contractor Veolia are working hard in challenging circumstances to maintain frontline waste collection services, but the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting our ability to keep everything running as it was previously.

Our current priority is for available staff to focus on collecting general rubbish and recycling, thereby helping to minimise disruption to you. The health and wellbeing of our frontline staff is important to us. There are guidelines that you must follow when disposing of waste that will limit the potential for the infection to spread if you - or someone in your household - is experiencing symptoms of COVID-19.
