Rubbish Collection

Rubbish is collected every Friday.  St Edmundsbury Borough council operates a three bin system with

  • blue bins for dry recyclables;
  • brown bins for compostable garden waste (there is a charge for this);
  • and black bins for the remaining domestic waste.

Bins are collected on alternate weeks (black bins one week with blue and brown bins the next).  More information, including what can be placed in each bin, can be found here.   

The dog poo bins are included on a separate collection, which will usually be on a Wednesday.  If you notice a bin has not been emptied please email Linda Harley, The Clerk.
