Bins and waste collections

Bins and waste collections including Christmas and New Year collections

Collections are returning to normal across Central Bedfordshire following the snow this week. We are confident that all waste will have been collected by the end of the week, including missed collections from Monday and Tuesday. Please continue to leave your bins in the normal collection point and the crews will collect as soon as possible.

All garden waste collections are currently suspended over the winter months.

About 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.

Putting out rubbish for collection

On collection day:

  • leave bins / sacks at the boundary of your property by 7am
  • check bins / sacks don’t obstruct the pavement
  • don't overload bins - garden waste bags have a weight limit of 10kg (see map below); wheelie bins have a weight limit of 85kg (see map below) - bins which are considered too heavy for safe handling and emptying will not be emptied (even if they weigh less than 85kg)
  • take your containers back onto your property once they've been collected

If you put your rubbish out and we don't collect it, you can report a missed bin collection. We explain how to do this and possible reasons for why collection wasn't made e.g. wrong bin out on the wrong day.

Help putting waste out

We will help residents who are unable to move their waste and recycling containers to the normal collection point (highway boundary) themselves and do not have anyone living at the address who is available to assist. Find out about assisted bin collection.

Bins and sacks we use

We provide different bins depending on where you live. These are shown in this image.
