Waste and Recycling Collection Days

Check your waste and recycling collection days, download your 2016 collection calendar, and see changes to collections over Bank Holidays.

We ask that bins, bags and boxes are placed together on the pavement in front of your property before 6am on the day of collection, but normally no earlier than the evening before. It may not always be possible to give you back the same kerbside recycling containers each time they are emptied due to the collection methods employed.

To check your collection days and download your collection calendar, enter your postcode with a space, eg BN7 2RU. If you don't know your postcode you can find it with Royal Mail's find-a-postcode tool.
