Food waste collection is temporarily suspended due to the Coronavirus outbreak. This is a decision based solely on the safety of our waste crews.
The food waste will still be collected, it would just need to be placed inside your black bin instead of the brown food waste caddy, we ask that you try to reduce your food waste where possible or to compost if you can.
If your black bin has already been collected this week please place your food waste into your black bin for the next collection.
These are unprecedented times and we don’t take this decision lightly given how much effort residents have put into increasing food recycling in recent months. However, the safety of our staff must be our first priority and we need to safeguard our essential services as much as we can at this difficult time. Our other waste collection services (black/green bins) will continue as usual.
We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause to you but we appreciate your continued support for our waste crews during this difficult time.
