When will my bins be collected?

You bin collection day has not changed, but which bins you need to put out each week has. 

From Monday 23 November a new bin collection calendar begins, which means:

  • Your rubbish bin is collected every week.
  • Your yellow-lidded recycling bin is collected every second week.
  • Your purple-lidded glass bin is collected on the alternate second week.

This change does not effect residents who live in the Abbotsford trial area
