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.


England has moved into Step 4 from 19 July 2021

NHS/care worker free parking

A free parking scheme for NHS workers, care workers and NHS volunteers in Allerdale Borough Council car parks has come to an end due to changes in Government guidelines.

Since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic Government guidance has stated that councils should provide free parking for the above groups to use while working or volunteering. However, with the Government continuing to ease lockdown restrictions, the guidance has now been changed and a decision has been taken to withdraw the emergency parking pass as of 21 June 2021.

The council operates a number of car parking locations across the borough. For more details on car parking locations, go to

Anyone with queries should contact the council’s parking services team on A copy of the Government's guidance can be found at
