Garden waste collections

The council and our waste collection partners Allerdale Waste Services would like to apologise for the issues which have affected some properties' garden waste collections over the last couple of weeks. The issues have been caused by self-isolation and other staff absences. 

The advice for households who've not had their collection this week is to take bins back in and present them on their next scheduled garden waste collection day.

Households are advised to continue checking our website and social media accounts for the latest information on collections.

Translating and interpreting services

Customer services

We use the Language Line service for translation and interpretation. This service enables customers to communicate with council departments and receive information about council services in their preferred language.

We can provide a verbal translation either over the telephone or face to face at the customer service centre and council offices. We can also provide written and emailed communications in other languages as required.

Alternative formats

We can provide translated, large print and audio CD versions of our printed information in most cases. Please contact customer services or the relevant council department to request information in alternative formats. There is also an alternative format link at the bottom of each page on this website which enables you to send a request online.

How do I make use of these translation services?

Contact our customer service team who can provide you with more information. You may have to book a meeting with them which the Language Line translator can also attend.
