Household waste and recycling

Household bin collections

If all green/grey or blue bins in your street are not collected on your usual day up to 6pm this week, we will return for them on the next working day, Monday to Friday. If all 'Week 1' brown bins in your street are not collected on your usual day up to 6pm this week, we will return for them on your next scheduled 'Week 1' collection day. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Bin collection days

Your 3 coloured household wheeled bins are for different kinds of waste. Your blue and green/grey bins are collected weekly.

Bin Collection
Blue bin Collected once a week on your usual day
Recyclable waste only – no food or garden waste.
Green/grey bin Collected once a week on your usual day
Non-recyclable – no garden waste.
Brown bin Collected every 2 weeks on your usual day
Garden and food waste only – no bags of any kind.

Brown bin collections every 2 weeks

For brown bin collections, your street will either be a 'Week 1' street or a 'Week 2' street. Check the collection day for your street and whether it's 'Week 1' or 'Week 2', using the street names links below.

Things to remember

It's important you remember:

  • to leave your bins out by 6am on the day of collection
  • to leave your bins at the front edge of your property, or at your agreed collection point
  • to use the right bin for the different types of waste and recycling
  • contaminated bins will not be emptied – check what goes in your bins
  • collections may not be at the same time every week
  • only waste in bins with the lid shut will be collected
  • no side waste will be collected unless we have given notice – for example, sometimes when there are changes for public holidays
