We are very sorry to all those affected by delays to waste, recycling and garden collections as the crews get used to new routes and vehicles. Please report any missed collections within two days so we can work with Suez to improve the service.

Microchipping Cats and Dogs

What you need to do

You’ll need to:

  • have your dog microchipped if it’s over eight weeks old
  • have your cat microchipped if is it's over 20 weeks old
  • make sure your dog wears a collar and a tag, which includes your address and telephone number

You’ll need to get your pet microchipped by a professional, like a vet or a private implanter.

If you don’t have your pets microchipped, you could receive a fine.

When your pet is microchipped:

  • it will receive a unique microchip number which you should write down for your own records
  • the professional who microchips your pet should register it for you and let you know which database will hold the information

If you move house, change your contact information or rehome your pet, you are responsible for keeping the microchip details up to date.

You can use the Check a Chip website to check which database your pet is registered.
