Bin collections during bad weather

Our bin crews are working hard to collect your bins as usual but may struggle on some of the steeper streets. If we do not get to you, leave your bin out and we will catch up as soon as possible.

Apply for housing benefit

If you pay rent for your home, whether to the city council, a housing association or to a private landlord, you may be entitled to help with your rent payments through the housing benefit scheme.

Use our benefits calculator

If you are a tenant of a  private landlord, any benefit you are entitled to will be paid to you.

If you are a council tenant any benefit is taken off your rent account to reduce the amount of rent you need to pay.
