Delayed waste/recycling collections
Sometimes we experience difficulties collecting waste and recycling in our borough for a variety of reasons including:
• Roadworks and road closures in the area
• Access issues (often caused by parked cars that our vehicles are unable to manoeuvre around)
• Adverse weather conditions
• Vehicle breakdowns
We apologise if your collection has been delayed and we will make further attempts to collect your waste and/or recycling at the next possible opportunity.
Please see information below for details of collections that have been delayed, and our anticipated return date.
We will only publish details of delayed collections on this page when the impact is widespread.
You can contact our Customer Services team on at email@example.com for information around missed collections where it affects an individual or small number of properties
