Service update Thursday 24 April

All crews are out on their scheduled collection rounds. On Wednesday 23 April we had outstanding refuse collections on Bennett Drive, Bennett Avenue, Shirley Avenue and in Southover and Dyke Road area. If you are one of the affected properties please leave your container out as we are returning to collect these today.

If your rubbish and recycling was not put out for collection on Good Friday or Easter Monday it will be collected on your next scheduled collection day. We will collect any extra waste, please place this next to your container. Over the May bank holidays please remember to leave your recycling and rubbish out for collection on your usual day. We'll be collecting recycling and rubbish on the May and August bank holiday Mondays.
