Bins and waste collections
Bins are collected on a fortnightly, alternative, rota (household waste one week, recycling and garden waste the following, and so on.) If you receive a food waste collection, this is collected on weekly basis.
Household waste bins, garden and food waste (if applicable) need to be left at the boundary of your property by 7am on your collection day. Please make sure they don't obstruct the pavements. Once collected, please take your bin back onto your property.
We provide different bins depending on where you live. These are shown in this image (PDF 2.3MB) .
Please note the kerbside collection of household garden waste will be suspended across Central Bedfordshire over the winter months from Monday, 5 December 2016 until Friday, 24 February 2017.Read more about the suspension of garden waste collections.
