Coronavirus - Our Services
Bins and Waste
Our collections, including clinical waste, are running as normal.
Household Recycling Centres
Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs) are open for essential use only, subject to the following rules.
For blue bin recycling we will accept side waste if it is contained in a clear plastic bag or an open carboard box. We will accept cardboard boxes that are flattened and neatly stacked next to the blue bin. If residents regularly have extra recycling they can have an additional recycling bin free of charge.
For grey/green bins we will not take any side waste. Residents can request an additional bin free of charge.
Disposal of personal waste during the Coronavirus Pandemic
If you are showing symptoms of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), personal waste such as used tissues and disposable cleaning cloths must be stored securely within disposable rubbish bags. These bags should be placed into another bag, tied securely and kept separate from other waste. This must be put aside for at least 72 hours before being put in your usual external household waste bin.
Other household waste can be disposed of as normal.
New bins are continuing to be delivered.
During the Covid 19 situation, the Council will continue not to tolerate any act of fly-tipping within the Borough. The Borough will continue to be monitored for potential fly-tipping offences, and patrolling and responding to fly tipping will be undertaken. Any offenders will be prosecuted. We encourage members of the public to report fly-tipping.
The Council will continue to enforce against anyone responsible for fly-tipping.
