When do collections take place?

South Tyneside Council will collect items between 7.30am and 5pm, with residents asked to place their items outside on collection day for 7.30am.

Items must be stored safely and securely, and the local authority asks that items are not put out too much before 7.30am.

Place the items waiting for collection on your property where you normally put your waste bins.
