We collect food waste every week and rubbish and recycling every fortnight on alternate weeks. If you pay for a brown bin this will be collected fortnightly, and will be on the same day as recycling.
Details for all of this and more can be found in our Collection Calendar which you can download by using the link of the right hand side of this page.
Your Collection Day
All your collections will take place on the same day. You can check what day this is this using our My Vale postcode search.
Your collection time may vary and will be any time from 7am until the end of the day. Bins should be visible for the crews who should be able to reach them by putting one foot on your property.
Please see the pages below to find out about bank holiday collections and details about collections if you live in a flat or communal building, or your waste is collected from sacks rather than wheeled bins.
