Household waste

All household waste collections are made from the kerbside outside of your property from 6.30am on your specified days. 

Visit My Area to find out when your collections take place. You need to enter your postcode and select your address. Then your next bin collection dates will show below the map. From there you can click through and view a bin collection calendar.

Have you lost a bin? If you have lost a bin or would like to buy additional bins you can view a wheeled bin price list. Please call us on 01252 622122 to discuss your needs further.  

During the hot summer months files and maggots can become a pest and cause bins to become unpleasant for residents. Here you can find our fact sheet on flies and maggots in household waste bins.

Black waste bin

  • Use your black bin for household waste.  
  • All waste should be contained within the bin. 
  • Additional waste is only taken on your collection following Christmas.
  • Bins containing garden waste will not be collected.

Sharps boxes & Clinical Waste Collections

You can have a sharps box delivered/collected by completing a Healthcare waste form which you can download or fill in at your GP.  Your GP will confirm the details and then send this on to us. Once we have received this we will write to you with the collection details and advise you of what to do when you require a collection next.

We can also collect any bulky items/white goods which you may wish to dispose of for a charge.
