Garden waste

Garden waste collections, including bookable sack collections, will be suspended from Monday 8 to Friday 19 January 2024. Collections will be back to normal the week commencing Monday 22 January.

Bulky waste

Bulky waste collections will continue as normal except for bank holidays and weekends.

Missed collections

Our collection crews may be later than normal after Christmas due to a heavy workload. In the event of a missed collection, you can report it online.

Christmas tree recycling

Christmas tree collections will be between Monday 8 January and Friday 19 January 2024. Collections will take place on your normal garden waste collection day, but you do not need a paid garden waste contract for this.

You can also take Christmas trees to these designated sites for recycling.

2024 collections

For other scheduled bank holidays in 2024, there will be no changes to waste and recycling collections dates – everything will be collected on your normal day. This includes Good Friday, Easter Monday, early May bank holiday, end of May spring bank holiday and the August summer bank holiday.
