Bin collection information
also known as: Assisted, Kerbside, Missed, Refuse, Rubbish, Wheeled bin.
Here you should find everything you need to know about your bins, when they are collected and what can go in them!
For those residents in South East
Northumberland who were due a recycling collection on Monday 14
July we collected as many bins as possible on Monday, but this was
affected by a backlog from the previous weeks strike action on
Thursday 10 July.
If we weren’t able to collect your recycling bin on Monday,
please note that your next collection will be in on Monday 28th
July. On that day we will collect recyclable materials that are
left in a clear recycling bag alongside your bin.
You can collect clear recycling bags from any council
information point. You can also take materials to your nearest
household waste centre.
Please enter your house number and post code into the boxes
below to see when your recycling bin, rubbish bin and
(optional) garden waste bin will be collected.
Report a missed bin collection
- Check your neighbours bins have been emptied. Bins are
collected between 7am and 5pm and the time may change from week to
- Check your bin wasn’t collected because it was contaminated –
is there a sticker on your bin or a note through your door?
