Recycling and rubbish collections

Recycling and rubbish collection days remain the same over the bank holiday period. Collection times may change, so please put your bin or bag outside by 7am. If you live in a street with time-banded collections, put your recycling and rubbish out at the usual time. Make sure you follow the guidance on presenting your recycling and rubbish.


Parks and open spaces should be used for essential exercise only, once a day. If you are out exercising, always maintain a 2 metre distance from others and keep moving at all times to free up space.

If you have a garden, please make use of it. Parks and open spaces should not be used for sunbathing, picnics/barbeques, gatherings or sports – this will prevent others from using the space safely.

We have frontline teams out across the borough to make sure parks are being used responsibly and safe social distancing is being followed.

Libraries and leisure centres

In line with government guidance, libraries and leisure centres are closed until further notice. Find out more

You can still access our digital library, where you can find a range of books, comics, audio books, magazines and newspapers available to existing and new members.
