When is my bin collection


To reduce the risk of maggots and flies:

  • cover your food waste with garden waste - this will stop the smells that flies are attracted to
  • use an insecticide strip inside your bin

If you need more than one brown bin you can buy an extra one from us by calling 01782 234000.
