What if bad weather stops my scheduled collection?

Wheeled bin collections

Please check your collection day, putting out the correct bin for that week and leaving it out all week until the bin is emptied. Our crews will keep trying to get to you, weather permitting.

We will update our missed bin information page with further details of where we may have been unable to make collections. 

Black sack collections

If they’re not collected by the middle of the afternoon, please take your black sacks in to stop animals or seagulls getting to them. Please put your black sacks back out by 6am each weekday until they are collected. Our crews will keep trying to get to you, weather permitting. Ideally, protect your black sacks by placing them in normal dustbins or covering them with an old sheet or tablecloth. Please do not leave your black sacks out all night.

Blue recycling bin/box collections & Paper and cardboard collections

Please take your paper and cardboard in and keep it until the next scheduled collection.
