We have set up a dedicated number to deal with any council tax issues for people affected by the explosion in Birstall last week - 01509 632533. We want to make sure we can help people as much as we can. 

Bin collections

Top tasks:

Please leave your bins at the edge of your property next to the road at 7am on your collection day. Bins will be emptied and returned to the edge of your property.

If recyclable materials are placed in black bin bags the crews cannot check them and unfortunately will not be able to take the bin away.

If you have an illness or disability which prevents you putting your bins or other containers out for collection, you may qualify for our assisted collections service.


Bin collection text messaging service

Our text messaging service will keep you up to date with any changes to bin collections and other waste services.

Just text your postcode to 07860 019100 - you'll receive a confirmation text and a message each time there's any change to bin collections or other waste services.

If you would like to unsubscribe to the text messaging service please text STOP to 07860 019100.

Residents not signing up to the scheme can still get up to date collection information from My Charnwood.
