You can check your collection day or see if your collection has been rescheduled using the box below

If your collection has been missed you can report this using the missed waste and recycling form up to two working days after the scheduled date

Bin collections

Regular recycling, non-recycling and food collections are continuing as normal at the moment

If your household is self isolating, personal waste (such as used tissues) and disposable cleaning cloths can be stored securely within disposable rubbish bags. These bags should be placed into another bag, tied securely and kept separate from other waste. This should be put aside for at least 72 hours before being put in your usual external household waste bin.

Green waste

There will be no green waste collections from 1 April 2020 until further notice. This will allow us to prioritise the other waste services and make sure they can continue to run as normal.

Ordering new bins

We are unable to take reports of replacement bins until further notice

In the meantime, non-recycling can be put in black bags, recycling in untied bags that are not black or purple and food waste in a cardboard box. You should continue to put your waste out on your normal collection day.

All Essex recycling centres are now closed until further notice.
