Garden waste collections update

Due to a shortage of drivers and pressures on the service, we are unable to empty some garden waste bins this week.

We are using all means at our immediate disposal, including the use of temporary staff, to maintain waste collections in the face of these current COVID-19 challenges and in a way that prioritises the collections of domestic, clinical and recyclable waste. Unfortunately, despite these contingency measures, gaps in the service have been unavoidable. We are striving to resume a full service as soon as we possibly can.

The garden waste rounds we haven't been able to deploy so far this week are:

  • Monday 13 September - Round 12
  • Tuesday 14 September - Round 12
  • Thursday 16 September - Round 11 and Round 12

To find out which round you are on, please visit our bin day lookup.

Residents affected are asked to present their bin for the next scheduled collection day in two weeks and we will make every effort to collect it. We will take up to three bin bags of side waste with the bin for this collection.

Alternatively, residents can take any excess garden waste to the local recycling centre. Locations can be found on the Nottinghamshire County Council website (opens in new window).

As per the service’s terms and conditions, we are not able to offer a part-refund for any missed collections. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Residents are encouraged to sign up for free bin collection reminders.

For information about the service visit our bins and recycling pages.
