Coronavirus (COVID-19) update
Bin collections are currently still running as normal, however some services are delayed. If your bin has not been collected on the scheduled collection day, we ask that you bring it in and then put it out the following day (except Sundays) for 7.30am.
Please wash your hands both before and after:
- Putting waste or recycling into your wheelie bin
- Putting your wheelie bin in or out for collection
Make sure that you double bag all potentially infected waste (tissues, etc.). Please store these bags for at least 3 days before you place them in your normal grey bin.
Please note that garden waste collections are currently suspended, and the Recycling Village is currently closed.
For updates on South Tyneside Council services and information about support at this time, see Coronavirus (COVID-19).
