Colchester Borough Council is monitoring the situation closely and will continue to take action to minimise disruption and keep residents and visitors safe.
Coronavirus: updates, advice and guidance
Due to the impact of coronavirus, our recycling collection service had been suspended since 25 March 2020.
Thanks to additional staff recruitment, and by temporarily reducing the frequency of collections across the borough, we can begin our recycling collection service again on a reduced basis.
Please note: Textile collections will remain suspended until further notice.
We have updated our recycling calendars to reflect the changes to recycling and rubbish collections over the next three months.
The calendar also includes information about how to dispose of personal waste if you are self-isolating or have coronavirus.
Please enter your postcode to check your calendar to see when we will be collecting recycling and rubbish from your area.

Households can also continue to put out an additional 60 litre black bag of rubbish on their black bag or wheelie bin collection day.
If you already have an agreed exemption in place with us for additional rubbish to be collected from your household, this amount will continue to be collected as well as the new borough-wide limit.
You can still report any missed collections that should have taken place as described on your temporary recycling calendar.
You can report a missed collection online.
