Refuse and Recycling Disruptions

Due to the ongoing winter weather conditions refuse and recycling collections are disrupted because of compacted snow and ice. Waste services are aware of those areas where collections have been missed and will be working to recover the situation as soon as possible. Please be patient as we try to work as safely as possible in the harsh conditions and keep your bins presented at kerbside until we are able to attend and empty them. (Updated 14 December 2022)
