Our services do not change on Bank Holidays; your waste and recycling will be collected on the usual day. This includes Easter, and all spring and summer Bank Holidays.
Over Christmas and the New Year, your bins may be emptied on a different day. Details will be published on this site and in a leaflet delivered to all homes in the autumn. All garden waste collections are suspended over the Christmas and New Year period.
Please put paper, card, tins, cans, aerosols and plastic bottles in the blue lid recycling bin. Unfortunately no plastic other than bottles are accepted (no plastic pots, tubs, trays or packaging). Please put everything loose in the blue lid bin, not in bags. Gift wrap cannot be put in recycling bins.
Empty jars and bottles can go in the glass recycling banks around the Borough.
Clothes and textiles can be taken to the textile banks.
If you have excess refuse or other household items for disposal, you can take them to a household waste recycling centre (HWRC). They are open 1 April - 30 September between 9am and 6pm and 1 October - 31 March between 9am and 4pm. They are closed on 25 and 26 December. If you have any queries about disposing of household rubbish please check our A - Z of waste or contact us on 01329 236100 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
