How will I be notified?

Any disruptions to normal bin collections will be listed in the table above.

In the event of severe weather any changes to the service will be notified here, via Facebook, Twitter, email alert and local media.

How are collections prioritised during a disruption?

Our priority uplifts during a period of disruption to collections will be Food Waste caddies, followed by grey bins, then blue bins and then bulky uplifts.

During severe weather our collection vehicles will experience the same issues as any other vehicles and they may not be able to access streets to empty containers and bins.

Please present your food waste container or wheeled bin on your normal collection day and leave it out until it is emptied.

If necessary, we will put in place alternative arrangements and give advice on these pages about how you should deal with your waste.

You can check your food caddy, blue, grey and brown bin collection calendars.

What can I do in the event of a disruption?

Should you wish to dispose of your recycling or waste during a disruption to bin collections you can take items to your local recycling centre.

These are located in: Broxburn, Blackburn, Linlithgow, Oakbank in Livingston, and Whitburn.

You can also help by sharing information with your friends, family and neighbours.
