Bins should be put out for collection by 7am on the morning of collection and taken back in afterwards on the same day.

Can you remind me to put my bins out?

With the roll out of the new fortnightly collection service the council is introducing a new single text message service which will send text message reminders the night before blue, green and brown bin collections. The only cost for this service is the initial text message to us.

Information on how to subscribe to the new service will be included in the information pack. You will also be able to find how to subscribe by viewing the online bin collection calendar (opens in new window)once you have moved onto fortnightly collections.

Important usage note:  Enter your postcode; your next collection dates will show; click a collection date to show future collection dates in a pdf format.  The code needed to subscribe to the service is shown on the specific calendar.

You will need to cancel any existing reminders by texting STOP to 07786 200401 for blue bin reminders, and STOP to 07786 200416 for brown bin reminders.

Problems

If you have problems with this service, please email wastewatchers@eastriding.gov.uk including your postcode, the mobile number which you used to set up the service and the bin which you wish to receive reminders for.


How do I stop bin collection reminder texts?

You can stop or cancel any bin collection reminder texts you are receiving by texting 'STOP' to 07786 200401 for blue bin reminders, 'STOP' to 07786 200416 for brown bin reminders, or 'STOP' to 07786 201286 for the fortnightly bin reminders.
