KNOW YOUR BIN DAY Handy guide to kerbside collections

Did you forget bin day? It's easy to do especially at this time of year, but we've got a nifty little tool to help jog your memory.

Just type your address in, and it'll tell you when you're next due for a collection, and which bins you need to put out.

Or if you're not so tech savvy, you can also grab a Kerbside Collection Calendar from one of our Customer and Library Service Centres.
