Close ​​​​​​​Waste collections

We are currently experiencing issues with our bin collections which means we have not been able to make it to some properties on the scheduled day. We apologise to everyone affected by this. To help alleviate the issue whilst a long-term solution is devised, we are suspending garden waste and glass, cans and plastic collections for up to two months from 8 July 2019. More details.

Food safety and hygiene advice

We're here to promote good food hygiene and protect the public from poor practices in food preparation and storage.

Some of the things we do are:

  • Food safety inspections
  • Advisory visits to new businesses
  • Investigate complaints and food poisoning outbreaks
  • Food sampling
  • Enforcement against poor practices

Where can I get food safety advice?

If you are a food establishment, you will need to ensure you meet the current food safety requirements.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) is the best place to get this advice.

Go to the FSA website

The FSA's Safer Food, Better Business guide is particularly useful in helping you to meet the food safety requirements.
