Black Bins

The black bin is for everyday household waste and should be used in conjunction with the green and burgundy bins, as it is important that you manage your waste and reduce what we send to landfill.

  • You can also find out when your bin collection day is by visiting our Self Service (opens in a new window) site, where you can also sign up for email bin alerts. 

Please read our Waste Collection Policy for more information.

Make sure your bin is presented, with the lid shut, at the edge of your property where it meets the pavement by 6am on your collection day. No extra bags or boxes will be taken.

If your bin is missed for collection, then please report this via our Self Service portal (opens in a new window).

If, due to disability or sickness, you (or no-one else in your property) are unable to present your bin for collection, then you can apply for Assisted Bin Collections
