Suspended bin collections - 12 August

Isle of Wight Council’s waste partners Amey have temporarily suspended some resident bin/sack collections in Newport, Gunville and Carisbrooke today (Friday 12 August) as temperatures have hit 30C and over.  

This action is for the safety of its collection crews, due to the heatwave. An amber warning of extreme heat is in place across the Isle of Wight and southern regions. The suspension means some waste or recycling may not be collected today that would usually take place on Friday.

Roads in Newport, Gunville and Carisbrooke where resident’s collections are affected today. Information is available on our waste and recycling updates page.

Assisted collections will not be affected.

They are advising residents that if your bin/sack is not collected today:

  • Leave the bin/sack out and it will be collected as priority tomorrow (Saturday 13 August)
  • If your waste or recycling has not been collected by 12 noon on Saturday 13 August, please report it online.
