Can I get an assisted collection?

We can arrange an assisted collection for you if you're not able to put the bins out because:

  • you have mobility problems or
  • you have health problems or
  • you are over 72 years old

and there is no other resident aged over 16 who can put the bins out.

Who do I contact to receive the service?

If you feel this applies to you or a family member, you can apply online now. 

Apply for assisted collection

Or alternatively you can call us 01204 336632.


To receive the assisted collection service there must be no residents over 16 years old in the household who can put the bins out.

You may be asked to provide evidence that you or any one else living with you can not put the bins out for collection.

Collection information

On your collection day, between 7:30am and 6pm, make sure any gates are left unlocked and our collection teams will come within the boundary of your property to collect the bins and return them after they have been emptied. The bins can be at the front, side or back of your property.
