Current Service Status: Due to a 4 hour delay due to vehicle breakdown, we are currently running behind schedule in the Tenbury area, We will endeavour to collect as much refuse and recycling due for collection today.

Due to essential works, the text message alert reminder system has been discontinued. If you wish to find out when your next collection day is click here.
Please note, that collection times are between 7am and 5pm. Therefore, please ensure your sacks/bin(s) are out for collection by 7am. We cannot guarantee that collection times will be the same each week and, occasionally, we have to amend the round which means bins are collected earlier/later than the week before. If missed collections are reported and the sacks/bin(s) were not presented at the time of collection, we cannot guarantee that we will return to collect it.
The move to Alternate Weekly Collections (AWC) is due to be implemented in April 2018. Work is currently underway to plan and model the collections before roll out next year. Residents will be written to ahead of any proposed roll out. Any residents eligible for a wheeled bin will receive one for their general waste ahead of the change. If the resident is currently on a sack collection for recycling, it is likely they will remain on sack collection for general waste too. Again, all residents will be written to ahead of the changes.
Our collection crews work as usual on all bank holidays (including over Easter) with the exception of Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day.
