Garden and bulky waste services suspended, orange sacks and Gerpins Lane closed

Collections, and the renewal of contracts for garden waste bins and compostable sacks, has stopped. We advise you to home compost as much of your green garden waste as you can. We will not be collecting bulky waste until further notice and the Reuse and Recycling Centres at Gerpins Lane is closed. Running out of orange sacks? Put your recycling in a bag that is either clear or as see-through as possible, and label it as recycling. Go to our service disruption page for details

Coronavirus waste disposal advice

Tissues, disposable gloves and other related items used by anyone with suspected COVID-19 and those cleaning up afterwards, should be double bagged, then stored securely for 72 hours before being thrown away inside your usual black sack waste. You should not put this waste out with your usual rubbish for weekly collections until negative test results are known or the waste has been stored for at least 72 hours. Cleaning advice from GOV.UK

Business waste

We do not provide a business waste collection service.

Businesses should arrange their rubbish collection with a registered waste contractor. You can find these online or in phone directories.

All businesses are legally required to have waste produced at their premises removed by a recognised trade waste carrier.

It is your responsibility to ensure they are licensed to collect your waste.

You can check whether a waste carrier is licensed on the environment agency website.

There is further information and advice on business and commercial waste on the Gov.uk website.

If you are aware of a business not managing their waste please see our illegal disposal of business waste page.
