Coronavirus: Updates and information

Find out about available support, how to offer help, and how to look after your wellbeing. Our customer service centre is open to help you by email and phone. Please continue to follow official NHS and government advice.

Community environment days

We have postponed these events until further notice, because of the social distancing restrictions to help prevent the spread of coronavirus.

We regularly bring skips to local neighbourhoods around the city, to help you clear household and garden waste.

We can help with garden clearance and collect large waste items such as sofas and washing machines. There’s usually a ‘take it or leave it’ stall where you can recycle or exchange unwanted items, too.

Please take items directly to the skips, or arrange for them to be collected. You could be prosecuted for flytipping if you’re caught leaving waste on the street.

These events are organised by our City Homes team, unless stated otherwise.

  • 6 June: Birdwood Road and Ancaster Way – postponed
