Coronavirus and the recycling, food waste, household rubbish and garden waste subscription services

Collection services and Coronavirus 

Services collecting household waste, recycling and garden waste are making collections normally.  The weekly food waste collection service has been suspended to allow us to focus on safe collections for crews and the implementation of the new recycling service.  Until the week commencing 14th August, food waste should be disposed of through the household rubbish bin.  The separate food waste service restarts on 17th August, with weekly collections recommencing alongside whichever of household rubbish and recycling collections residents have scheduled during that week.

From 17 August all the collection services will be operating in their new normal pattern:

  • Household rubbish bin: fortnightly collections alongside food waste caddies, alternating with the recycling bin and bag
  • Recycling bin and bag: fortnightly collections alongside food waste caddies, alternating with the household rubbish bin
  • Food waste: weekly collections
  • Garden waste subscription service: fortnightly collections alongside the household rubbish bin
     

Coronavirus: safe disposal of used tissues, disposable cloths and wipes. 

If you have confirmed or suspected coronavirus, or symptoms of the virus you must bag up any used tissues, disposal cloths or wipes and leave them for 72 hours before putting them into your household rubbish for disposal.  This keeps our staff safe, so that we can continue to offer undisrupted collections.
