Waste & Recycling Services (updated Tuesday 20 March)

All refuse, recycling, food waste and garden waste collections are running today (Tuesday 20 March) as scheduled. 

Collections due on Monday 19 March were made as planned, with a small exception of areas which our contractor will be returning to today.  Therefore residents are advised to leave their containers at the kerbside until the collection has been made.

Keep well keep warm

You can find NHS advice on how to keep well and warm during the winter here: https://www.nhs.uk/livewell/winterhealth/pages/keepwarmkeepwell.aspx

Look in on vulnerable neighbours and relatives  

Check up on older neighbours and relatives, and those with heart or respiratory (breathing) problems, to make sure:

  • they're safe and well
  • are warm enough, especially at night
  • have stocks of food and medicines so they don't need to go out during very cold weather
