Food waste collections suspended today (1 October)

01 October 2021

Waste, recycling and street cleaning services are severely affected by staff shortages today (1 October). All food waste collection services have therefore been suspended.

Please bring your food caddy in and present it again on your next scheduled collection day.

If you need additional capacity before your next collection, you can place food waste in either your garden waste bin (if you subscribe to the garden waste service) or your purple waste bin.

For food waste collections due next week, please place your bins out for collection as usual. Any further service disruption information will be posted on our website and social media channels.

We are sorry for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your understanding.
