Recycling, rubbish and street cleaning
Check your collection day
Cityclean service update
Collection days are not changing over Christmas and New Year, so please put your refuse and recycling out on your usual day. We will be collecting on all weekdays, including Monday 26 December, Tuesday 27 December and Monday 2 January.
To check your collection day, put your postcode in the box above and select your address. If your recycling is collected fortnightly, you can also download your 2017 collection calendar.
If we miss your collection, please leave your containers out and we'll return as soon as possible.
Christmas tree recycling sites across the city will be open between Monday 2 January and Saturday 14 January.
We are pleased to have come to an agreement with the union, GMB to prevent further strike action. Some of our refuse and recycling drivers are continuing to work to rule as part of ongoing industrial action. Your scheduled collection may be missed but please continue to put your boxes and bins out. We apologise for any inconvenience.
