Check how to prepare your waste for collection.

Barrow area collection times

You should leave you bins out from 7am till 5pm.

All garden waste should be placed in your brown wheelie bin outside the boundary of your property as we cannot enter without prior permission unless you have requested an assessed collection.

Eden area collection times

Collections times in Eden are:

  • 7am for garden and recycling waste collections
  • 6am for household waste collections

Place no more than three garden waste bins on the kerb or collection point. We will only collect up to a maximum of 5 bags of side waste. 

We will leave the same number of replacement bags as those set out for collection up to a maximum of 2. 

Properties in Penrith receive a 6 monthly allocation of blue bags in February and August rather than weekly, eliminating the need for blue bags to be delivered on each collection.

If your refuse contains hot ashes, you can put them in a dustbin. The dustbin must be made of steel and have two handles. Set the dustbin on the kerb or collection point by 6am on collection days.

South Lakeland area collection times

All collections are between 7am to 3pm.
