Coronavirus: Updates and information

We are adapting our services as the situation changes. For details and to find out how to get help or volunteer to help others, visit our 'Coronavirus: Help for communities' page. Please follow the official NHS and government advice.

Community environment days

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.
