Our social media pages are monitored between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday, (except bank holidays and public holidays).

If you contact us on either of these channels during these times we will try to reply as soon as possible. 

We will always try to help, but unfortunately we are unable to formally act upon and respond to reports of problems such as missed rubbish collections or official complaints using Twitter or Facebook.

In these cases we will direct you to the correct form to complete on our website. This will ensure that the correct department receives your comment or complaint.
