Waste and recycling service changes

Recycling and garden waste services suspended

Due to the impact of coronavirus (COVID-19), Colchester Borough Council has made the decision to suspend its garden waste and recycling collections from 25 March 2020 until further notice.  

The outbreak of coronavirus has led to reduced resources to run the service, as well as an increase in the amount of rubbish households are putting out for collection as they spend more time at home. 

We have made this decision so we can focus on the critical elements of the service in order to maintain public health and safety. The decision has also been made with the safety and welfare of our staff in mind, taking into account government guidance on social distancing.
