Information on restarting waste collections

Trade waste collections will restart on Tuesday 30 January.

Domestic collections will restart on Wednesday 31 January.

Uttlesford District Council will be collecting last week’s non-recycling/general waste bins and food waste caddies.

The crews will be able to take some side waste which must be in black bags, up to four per household.

They will aim to get to you on your usual collection day.  However, they may not initially be running as many lorries as they would normally, so if they do not manage to get to you on your usual collection day, please leave your bins out and they will be collected.

Collections will be made either in their own vehicles or those supplied by other organisations on their behalf, including other councils.

Please note, as they are prioritising the non-recycling collections this week, recycling collections will restart in the week commencing 12 February as per the normal schedule.

They will update regarding garden waste collections in the next few days.

Uttlesford District Council thanks residents for their patience and are very sorry for the inconvenience this has caused.

Christmas & New Year bin collections

There are some important changes to bin collections this Christmas and New Year.

For the Christmas week (19 to 22 December) Uttlesford District Council will be collecting the general waste bin and food waste caddy as normal.

Uttlesford District Council will not be collecting any bins in the week following Christmas (26 to 29 December).

Collections will return to normal from Tuesday 2 January. This will be for the recycling bin and food waste caddy. Extra recycling can be placed at the side of your bin for collection. Please put items in white or clear bags or cardboard boxes – Uttlesford District Council cannot collect your recycling if it is in black bags.

The following week (9 to 12 January) will be a general waste bin and food waste caddy collection week. Extra black bags can be placed at the side of your bin, up to a maximum of four bags, for this week only.
