Residents who need to dispose of items such as stoma bags, colostomy bags, bandages and dressings can use our bag collection service.
This collection is made every Wednesday and bags should be left on your doorstep the night before or by 6am on the day of collection. Our team will leave new bags for you when they collect your disposed bags.

Sharps box collection
Residents who need to dispose of needles, syringes, lancets (used with finger pricking devices) or clippers can use our sharps box collection.
Sharps box collections are usually made on the first Thursday and Friday of every month.
Sharps box collections for June are now full.
Next collection dates are Thursday 6 and Friday 7 July.
Boxes should be left on your doorstep the night before or by 6am on the day of collection.
If you live in a flat, which has a 'trade' button that our team can use to gain entry, then the box can be left outside your front door. Alternatively, leave the box in a communal bin area that our team can access. When you request a collection, please add a note (providing any access codes, if needed) when asked 'Are there any further details you want to provide us with?'

To obtain sharps boxes, visit your GP or local pharmacist.
Missed sharp box collection
If your rubbish hasn't been collected on your advised collection day and you have followed instructions for collection, please let us know.
Please wait until after 4pm on the Friday to raise a missed sharp box collection, as our crews are out collecting until this time.
