We’re sorry we couldn't empty your green bin

Update Thursday 27/01/22:

Unfortunately green bin collections had to be suspended this week (24th - 28th January) due to unavoidable staff shortages. We previously advised that the planned winter service break would start one week early and continue for five weeks instead of four. However, with the help of our refuse and recycling teams it will now end one week earlier, keeping to the original planned length of four weeks.

Green bin collections will resume on Monday 21st February.

Affected bin collection calendars have been updated with these new dates - www.northwarks.gov.uk/bins 

News article Wednesday 19/01/22:

Due to unavoidable staff shortages there will be no green bin collections next week. The planned winter service break will now start one week early and continue for five weeks instead of four. This means there will be no green bin collections from Monday 24th January until Friday 25th February inclusive. Green bin collections will restart on Monday 28th February. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Please note we are unfortunately unable to offer refunds for this service. We will attempt to clear any backlog when the service resumes, but in the meantime, we would like to remind residents, that garden waste is accepted at all of Warwickshire’s Household Waste Recycling Centres (tip) www.warwickshire.gov.uk/hwrc.

Green bins due to be collected this week will be emptied as normal.

Thank you for your continued patience and understanding
