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.

  • Look out for a confirmation to say you are registered.

There is more information on the Your Vote Matters website .

If you are unable to register online, you can use the downloadable form .

If your application is completed correctly, and not objected to, your details will be added to our list of new electors and we will change your details within seven weeks. We will write to confirm when your application is approved.

Do I have to register for every election?

Once you are on the register, we check your details annually to see if they are correct. If nothing has changed you need to tell us. You do not need to register again.

If you move house you will have to register again.
