Garden waste collection bin

Dear Garden Waste Customer,

You’re probably aware that we have had to suspend brown bin collections this week because of the number of drivers off sick or self-isolating.

We have listened to feedback from the public and rather than cancel this weeks service completely we have moved it to next week which means all future garden waste collections across the city will also be done a week later than usual.

The table below shows the changes to collections (this will remain in place until further notice):-

4 weekly collection date
(week commencing)
New 4 weekly collection date
(week commencing)
15/06/2020 22/06/2020
22/06/2020 29/06/2020
29/06/2020 06/07/2020
06/07/2020  13/07/2020

For a full schedule please visit the garden waste collection page on the council website.

All collections will remain free of charge as it has been since mid-May until we are able to confidently move back to a normal fortnightly collection.

Our bin crews have done a fantastic job in recent months and many of these key workers have voluntarily put in hours of overtime to ensure our bins can be collected at a time when we most need it.

Thank you in anticipation of you help with these unavoidable changes to service.
