Rubbish and recycling

A number of trade unions staged industrial action on Thursday 10 July which meant bins could not be collected on this day.

The areas affected were:

  • Coppice, Werneth and Hollinwood for grey bin, blue bin and green bin collections
  • Failsworth for brown and green bin collections

The bins due that were due to be collected on 10 July will now be collected as follows:

  • If your blue and grey bins were due to be collected on Thursday 10 July, they will now be collected on Thursday 24 July
  • If your brown bin / black box were due to be collected on Thursday 10 July, it will now be collected on Thursday 24 July
  • If your green bin were due to be collected on Thursday 10 July, it will now collected on Thursday 17 July
Please note that we will take all additional waste on these collection days if placed neatly out in clearly marked bags.
