Once again there will be a winter break for all kerbside collections of household garden waste across Central Bedfordshire. The collections will be suspended from Monday, 7 December 2020 until Friday, 26 February 2021 inclusive.
Residents are encouraged to check their last collection date for their area, which will be either the week commencing Monday, 23 November or Monday, 30 November. Collections will resume again on Monday, 1 March 2021. All other waste collections will operate as normal during this period.
Throughout these months, only very low volumes of garden waste are collected, and it is therefore not cost effective to provide the service during these months.
During the break in service, garden waste can still be recycled at our Household Waste Recycling Centres which are open seven days a week from 9am -5pm, including bank holidays. Certain restrictions due to Covid-19 may be in operation at all four sites. For details of the opening times including the opening times over the Christmas and New Year period please visit our website. Residents with enough space in their gardens are encouraged to home compost. We encourage home composting by offering all residents a discount on compost bins and accessories.
