All Recycling Centres remain closed indefinitely- in line with Government advice and to stop unnecessary journeys and possible contamination and transference of COVID- 19 from those visiting and staff.
Household Bin Collection Days remain the same. However Blue and Brown Bins are Priorities.
Please if your Bin is NOT collected on the Set Day leave it out the next day too. Differing drivers and staff will be operating so please leave your bins visible (not necessarily where you usually leave them). Please help any vulnerable neighbours with their Bins in and out. From 31st March Brown Bins will go onto 4 week cycles. Black (Paper) & Green (Cans / Plastic) Bins will be emptied sometime but please remember, Blue & Brown are priorities.
damaged Bins, requests for new uplifts and contacts to the Department about missed Bins, will not be dealt with during COVID- 19 and would take up unnecessary staff time.
What to do with your rubbish if you have COVID-19 symptoms
As per government guidance, personal waste (such as used tissues) and disposable cleaning cloths can be stored securely within disposable rubbish bags. These bags should be placed into another bag, tied securely and kept separate from other waste. This should be put aside for at least 72 hours before being put in your usual external household waste bin. Other household waste can be disposed of as normal.
