When to put your bins/bags out

Please put your bins/bags on the kerbside from 6.30pm the night before your collection day and return your bins/bags to within your property boundary before midnight on the day of your collection.

Please only use Plymouth City Council bags and not black bags.

Bank holidays

Your bins will be collected one day later than usual if there's a bank holiday.

Community collection points

Some areas of the city have community collection points with community bins for waste and recycling. These are collected and emptied as and when it is required.

Help to put out your bins/bags

If you can't put your bins/bags out due to a disability, and there's no-one in your home to help, you might be able to get an assisted collection.
