Assisted bin collections

We can arrange help for residents who have problems moving their wheelie bins or recycling containers when they are ready for collection.

This service is free of charge to people who qualify for it. You may be visited by a council officer to check your eligibility for the scheme.

What you must do

  • Ensure we have access to the property on the collection day
  • Leave your gate unlocked
  • Make sure your bin is accessible to us
  • Not have dogs loose on your property
  • Let us know if your circumstances change and you no longer need an assisted collection.
