A break for all garden waste collections for the winter in Central Bedfordshire

Monday, 19 October 2020

Once again, there'll be a winter break for all kerbside collections of household garden waste across Central Bedfordshire.

The collections will be suspended from Monday, 7 December 2020 until Friday, 26 February 2021 inclusive. Please check the last collection date for your area, which will be either the week commencing Monday, 23 November or Monday, 30 November.

Search by street name to find your collection date

Collections will resume again on Monday, 1 March 2021. All other waste collections will operate as normal during this period.

Throughout these months, only very low volumes of garden waste are collected, and it is therefore not cost effective to provide the service during these months.

During the break in service, you can still recycle your garden waste at our tidy tips, which are open seven days a week from 9am to 5pm, including bank holidays. Certain restrictions due to COVID-19 may be in operation at all four sites.

Find out when our tidy tips are open, (we'll update for opening times over the Christmas and New Year period).

Hope composting

If you've got enough space in your garden, it's worth home composting.
