This means we may have to restrict the number and type of collections we are able to make each day.
Your collections may not be made by your normal vehicle nor at the usual time so, as always, we advise that waste is put out by 7.00 a.m.
The materials we collect are valuable resources and we will continue to recycle and process all the materials we collect during the outbreak as we do normally.
We will be updating the table below with any service suspensions or changes:
Recycling and Waste Service Status
If your household is affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19) any waste materials that you come in contact with need to be handled carefully before they are collected. This will help to prevent further spread of the virus.
Please follow the advice below:
If you are self-isolating, or if anyone in your household is displaying symptoms, please ensure that you keep your bagged waste for a period of 72 hours in a place that cannot be accessed by other people or pets.
Please throw away any used PPE in residual grey bin waste at home or at work, or a litter bin if you're outside.
Do not put used PPE in your recycling - these items cannot be recycled through conventional recycling facilities.
Where possible, chose reusable PPE. You can make face coverings at home, using scarves or other textile items. Read the guidance on how to wear and make a cloth face covering here.
Cloth face coverings should be washed in line with manufacturer's instructions. When you are ready to dispose of your home made face coverings, please place them in your grey bin.
Our operations team will decide how many collections we can make on a daily basis depending on how many staff we have available to work.
Glass, paper and can banks are all being emptied as normal.
Salvation Army Clothes and Shoe banks are not being serviced until further notice. Please keep hold of items for these banks until further notice.
Majority of our recycling banks are being emptied as normal and are fully serviceable.
There are a few sites obstructed by barriers (as part of the coronavirus (COVID-19) guidance) in some supermarkets and our beach car parks are closed, so we are unable to empty these recycling banks at this time. Please refrain from using these banks in these locations and keep your recycling at home until the recycling banks/household recycling centres re-open.
Thank you for your patience and understanding at this time.
