Bin collections suspended

Unfortunately we had to suspend waste collections on Thursday December 14 due to the icy conditions.

We will collect Thursday's rounds on Friday December 15, and Friday's rounds on Monday December 18. Please leave your bins out on your normal collection day as we may be able to catch up for some properties. Apologies for any inconvenience.
