You are here: Home / Waste Collection And Recycling

Bank Holiday collections

Bins and garden waste sacks are emptied on the usual day. There is no change over Bank Holiday weeks. Please put your bin and sack out at the usual time on the usual day.

Christmas bin collections 2021

Over Christmas 2021 and New Year, there will not be any change to the day your bin is emptied. Bins due in Christmas week and after New Year will be emptied on the usual day.

The current garden waste service will stop after your collection between 6 and 17 December. The new service will commence from February 2022.

Christmas trees

In early 2022 we will be offering a free Christmas tree collection service. Between 10 and 21 January, on your normal recycling day only, one Christmas tree per property will be collected. It should be left next to your recycling bin. In future years, Christmas trees will only be collected as part of the new garden waste subscription service.

Food waste

Find ways to store food External Hyperlink, and use up left-overs External Hyperlink, to reduce the amount of food in your bin, and save you money.


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.

Empty jars and bottles can go in the glass recycling banks around the Borough.

Clothes and textiles can be taken to the textile banks.

Household waste recycling centres 'HWRC'

You can take excess refuse or other household items to a household waste recycling centre (HWRC). They are open every day except 25 and 26 December and 1 January, but you will need to book a slot to visit. If you have any queries about disposing of household rubbish please check our A - Z of waste, contact us on 01329 236100 or email at
