Household waste and recycling

Coronavirus (COVID-19) – waste and recycling

Household waste and recycling – temporary bin collection changes from 6 April 2020.

Linford Household Waste and Recycling Centre ('the tip') is closed till further notice.

Collection changes from Monday 6 April

We have had to make some temporary changes to the way we collect household waste and recycling during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

These follow resident feedback and are needed to make sure we can safely continue a regular bin collection service. Please:

  • bag all tissues before disposing of them
  • make sure your bins are out by 5am for collection
  • stay at least 2 metres from our bin staff as they do their work

Easter collections – there will be no change to waste collections days around Easter, the May bank holidays or the August bank holiday.

Until further notice
