Most of our services have returned to normal in line with Step 4 of the national roadmap. For information such as opening times and contact details please visit the relevant service page on our website.

We will continue to provide details of any COVID-related service disruptions on this page.

Household waste, recycling and green waste collections

From Tuesday 20 July household waste collections will move to fortnightly and green waste collections will be suspended.  

There will be no change to recycling collections and these will continue on your designated red or blue week, with household waste being collected on the alternative week. If you do not know whether you are a blue or red week use the search tool here.

Weekly household waste collections will continue for people who leave their bin out in a back alley and those who live on a farm.

Further information on the changes can be viewed here.
