Easter Bank Holiday bin collections

Due to the Easter Bank Holiday, waste and recycling collection days will change slightly from Friday 10 April.

This means from Friday 10 April your collection will take place one day later than normal. For example if your waste is normally collected on a Friday for this week and next it will be collected on a Saturday (this is the same as every other bank holiday).

The graphic shown provides an easy guide to see when your collection will be. Don’t forget to check which bin you need to put out as part of our move to alternate weekly waste and recycling collections here

Food waste                                                                                                                                        Did you know that you can line your food waste bin with any plastic bag or even newspaper?   Please check you do not have a food waste bin before applying for one as RBWM only have a limited number available at the moment.

Community Hub for volunteering

The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead community hub will help community groups and individuals who want to volunteer to co-ordinate their efforts.  From our web page you can

  • volunteer to help
  • register your community group
  • request help

The hub will also ensure that our most vulnerable residents get the help and support they need during the COVID-19 outbreak. If you are an organisation already working in your community and offering services – please let RBWM know by email where you are and what you are doing so we can reach the most vulnerable.
