Find your bin day

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

You can also recycle Christmas cards and wrapping paper in your brown bin as along as there is no glitter or foil on them.

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. In most cases your brown bin, green lidded bin, and red bag are emptied one week and your black bin the following week.

Help us to empty your bins

Out by 6am - In by 7pm.
It is against the law to leave your bins on the pavement after they have been emptied.
Bins will be removed and you may receive a £60 fine and have to pay to have a bin returned.

  • Check to see which bin should be put out
  • Make sure your bins can be seen where your property meets the pavement
