Stormy weather advice: bins and litter

The Met Office is forecasting possible strong winds over the next few days.

Stormy weather can result in litter on the streets and bins being blown over and so we're advising residents to:

  • Ensure their bin lid is fully closed
  • Place bins and boxes out as late as possible prior to collection; and
  • Take them back in from the street/neighbourhood as soon as workable after.

If your bin has gone missing, before ordering a new one, please check around your street as the wind may have taken it away from where it was left.

If there is any wind blown litter as a result of collections please contact us:
