Bin collection dates

The online bin calendar has been temporarily disabled due to disruptions caused by industrial action.

Bin collection dates in May

  • From Tuesday 21 May (Bins are being collected)
    Put all bins out every day and leave them out until one has been collected.

Residents in Whitburn who have an additional bin as part of a pilot scheme are advised to put out all three bins.

Green waste

Residents should put out their green waste bin and leave it out until it is collected. Collections are continuing as normal (aside from strike days).

Putting your bin out

  • put your bin out for collection by 7.30am
  • make sure the lid is closed (if the lid isn't closed, we will either not empty the bin or remove bags to allow the lid to close)
  • we cannot collect any extra waste alongside your bin

For information on securing your bin see guidance on securing your bin.

Once your bin has been emptied, please return your bin to your property on the same day.


Do not put batteries in any of your bins, as they can cause a fire. See where to take batteries.
