Earlier waste collections 11 and 12 August 2022

Your waste and recycling collections will start an hour earlier from 6am on Thursday 11 and Friday 12 August 2022. This is to allow our crews to work in lower temperatures earlier in the day. Please have your waste out at 6am. Collection times throughout the day may change as a result.

The welfare rights unit

The Welfare Rights Unit  advises residents on how to maximise their income and sign post them towards other services that they may find beneficial.
