One Armed Vehicle Bin Collections

If any of your bins are collected by one of our ‘one-armed vehicles’, we need your help to ensure we can empty them as efficiently as possible.
Follow these simple steps – or watch our short video to see the steps in action.

  • Make sure the handles of your bin are facing away from the road and towards your property

  • Place your bin within 2.5m or 8ft of the roadside

  • Make sure your bin isn’t tight up against a wall, fence or hedge

  • If you have 2 bins being collected on the same day, place them slightly apart (approx. 0.3m or 1ft) to give the vehicle’s arm enough space to work correctly

And don’t forget to continue to leave your bins out by 7.30am on your collection day.
