Due to the impact of COVID-19, and the continued increase in the number of people staying and working from home, Nottingham City Council are seeing a significant increase in the amount of waste being presented which continues to disrupt the amount of resource available in our waste services team as the vehicles get full quicker than the rounds are planned for.  

We have had to make the difficult decision to continue to suspend collection of all reported missed bins in order to concentrate available resources to statutory scheduled waste collection.  This includes all bin types (Green Bin, Recycling Bin and Garden Waste).

We are looking at all options to reinstate the missed bin service, and thank you for your patience during these unprecedented times.

If due to unforeseen circumstances we have been unable to collect your street on the scheduled day, we will return as soon as possible.

Otherwise, please present your bin on the next scheduled collection: 

  • Recycling Waste (Grey Lid Bin):  Please compress recycling waste by flattening or crushing items like cans and plastic milk bottles and cut up cardboard boxes to make more room in your recycling bin.
  • Residual Waste (Green Bin):  We anticipate that there will be additional waste presented and we will do our very best to collect if presented in bags at the side of the bin on the next scheduled collection, but please bear with us as our crews need to make daily decisions on clearing all side waste based on the amount of waste collected from emptying wheeled bins.
