What to do if your waste is not collected

If we’re unable to collect your waste or recycling due to severe bad weather:

  • Leave your household waste bin out. If we can’t get to you on your scheduled collection day, we’ll come back and collect it as soon as it is safe to do so.
  • Take your garden waste bin back in and put it out on your next scheduled garden waste collection day.
  • Leave your recycling boxes and blue sacks out (as long as they don’t present a trip hazard). We’ll collect them as soon as it is safe to do so.
