6am starts for waste collections in continuing hot weather

Recycling and rubbish collections will start daily at 6am due to the high temperatures.

Please ensure your bins and boxes are all out in time for the early start (and no earlier than the night before), and note that some collections times may change.

The new start time will continue until cooler weather returns.

To help crews get your waste collected, please:
* Sort and roughly segregate materials in boxes without using carrier bags.
* Rinse all containers and squash all but glass and aerosols.
* Cut up all large card and flatten all cardboard boxes.


Missed collections

Refuse, recycling or food waste must be put out for collection by 7am on the correct day.

If you believe your waste collection has just been missed, report it using the form below or contact customer services on 0300 303 8588. Missed collections will be collected within two working dates of being reported.
