Waste and recycling

Due to the new restrictions put in place because of the COVID-19 outbreak there are a number of changes to RBWM’s waste and recycling service:

Stafferton Way civic amenity site is now closed until further notice.

The garden waste collection service is now suspended until further notice, in order to prioritise collections of rubbish, recycling and food waste. Any missed weeks will be added to the end of the paid subscription at no extra cost when the service resumes.

Normal waste and recycling collections continue as normal currently.

RBWM Community Hub Activation
