Collections missed last week due to the snow will not be collected because of the new waste and recycling service starting this week.
Missed collections on Wednesday 28 February, Thursday 1 March and Friday 2 March
If your bin or box was not collected last week because of the snow and ice, we will not be returning to pick up these missed collections. We’re really sorry about this but here's some more information about it:
My black bin was missed last week – why aren’t you catching up this week?
This is because Suez doesn’t have the resources (either in workforce or in vehicles) to be able to do both a black bin and a recycling collection for some households, the scheduled black bin collection for others and the scheduled recycling for the rest, all at the same time. Doing this would make all of the new calendars wrong and would cause confusion about what collection is next due.
When will you be collecting my black bin, and all the extra rubbish?
Suez have confirmed that, if your bin was missed last week because of the snow, the collection teams will take a reasonable amount of rubbish if it is bagged up and put next to your black bin on your next black bin collection day. We know some of you will have a lot of extra rubbish, so we understand you might need to put a few extra bags out. This side waste may be collected by a separate bin lorry so please don’t worry if it’s not taken at the same time as your black bin is emptied.
Where am I meant to store all the extra rubbish in the meantime?
My green box wasn’t emptied last week, when will the recycling be taken?
