Missed refuse collections

Due to operational problems we have been unable to complete recycling collections in the Bellingham - West Woodburn area. Northumberland County Council would like to apologise to all households affected, and ask that they either leave their bins out or present them for collection from 7am on Wednesday the 23rd of October.

Customer handy tills planned downtime 21-23 Oct

Effective: 16 Oct 2019 to 23 Oct 2019

Our payment processing system, Capita Pay360, will be updated in customer information centres from Monday 21 October. Unfortunately this means payments cannot be accepted at our customer information centres during the planned downtime of 21 - 23 October.

Online payments and automated telephone payments will still be available during this time. Any council bill that contains a barcode can be paid for at any Post Office or PayPoint in the UK.

We apologise for this disruption.
