Extreme Heat: Tuesday’s brown bin collections re-scheduled

Bins, Waste and Recycling
17:06, Friday, 15th July 2022

Changes are being made to bin collections with the temperature predicted to soar to almost 40 degrees.

There will be no brown bin collections on Tuesday 19 July and these will now be collected on Tuesday 2 August.

All crews will be working on collecting general waste and recycling to ensure staff can get rounds finished earlier and avoid working during the hottest part of the day.

If your general waste and red recycling bin or kerbside boxes are due for collection on Tuesday 19 July, these will be collected as normal. Please ensure your bin is presented by 7am on the morning of collection.

We are sorry for any inconvenience but with unprecedented temperature predicted the safety of the hard-working refuse collectors – who walk up to 10 miles a round – has to be a priority.
