Close Waste collection services

Garden waste and recycling (glass, cans and plastic) services: We are working hard to get these services resumed and will announce a resumption date as soon as we can. We apologise for the inconvenience and thank customers for their patience. Domestic waste, paper/card and trade waste collections remain unaffected by the changes. More details here.
