Close ​​​​​​​Waste collections

Bins not been emptied? We do apologise, but due to changes to our waste collection services the crews are finding they are not able to make it to some properties on the right day. We are working to address this. If your bin hasn't been emptied, check our webpage to see if you live in an area we know about and, if so, please just leave your bin out. You do not need to report it to us. We are doing everything we can to return to your property in the following day or two. You can also find out more about the changes to our bin collections and check your bin day with our online calendar.

Changes to bin collections over Easter

Andrew Gilbert

April 15, 2019

Allerdale Borough Council is reminding residents of changes to bin collections and opening hours over the Easter period.

Bins due to be collected on Good Friday, 19 April, will be collected as normal. However, with effect from Easter Monday 22 April, bins will be collected one day later throughout the week – with those which would normally be collected on the Friday (26 April) collected on the Saturday (27April) instead. Collections will be back to normal from the following week, commencing Monday 29 April 2019.

More information is available by visiting our bin collection calendar page, where residents can check bin collection dates, report a missed collection, and check for anything that could affect collections.
