  1. Skipped Recycle

    Do we get a refund if the bin collectors skip a whole week? What about two weeks?

    1. Simon Gatward (Post author)

      Our recycle waste bin was collected earlier today, was yours missed? Central Beds Council do have a number you can contact them on if your bin was missed:

      If your bin or bag has not been collected you can either report it on the day of collection after 4.30pm (Monday – Thursday) and after 3.30pm (Friday) or within 48 hours by calling 0300 300 8302.

      As for a refund, a question best directed to CBC, but I suspect I know the answer…..
