Bins and waste collections
Garden waste collection suspended over winter
Please note the kerbside collection of household garden waste will be suspended across Central Bedfordshire during the winter months from Monday, 4 December 2017 until Friday, 2 March 2018 inclusive. Find out more about the suspension of garden waste collections.
Bins are collected on an alternate weekly basis: one week we will collect your black lidded rubbish bin, and the following week your recycling and garden waste will be collected.
If you receive a food waste collection, this is collected on a weekly basis.
Please ensure that all bins / sacks are left at the boundary of your property by 7am on your collection day. Please make sure the bins / sacks don’t obstruct the pavement. Once collected, please take your containers back onto your property.
We provide different bins depending on where you live. These are shown in this image (PDF 2.3MB) .
