Who picks up my waste?

Household waste disposal is the responsibility of the County Council, but household waste collection is managed on a district-by-district basis.

This means the operators collecting your waste, bin sizes and frequency of rounds are all different.

Each district and borough council has dedicated web pages with all the information you need, including bin services, missed rounds and signing up for green waste collections.
