Household drop-off service restarts

PUBLISHED: 13 April 2022

Colchester Borough Council’s seasonal Saturday Household Drop-Off Service will restart in April and will run until September 2022.  

This year, the drop-off service will be visiting 52 locations across the borough, picking up small, broken, or unwanted household items that are either not recyclable or not collected as part of their kerbside collection. Garden waste can also be dropped off at these sessions and will be composted.

Items that will not be accepted as part of this service include items collected as part of kerbside collections (except for garden waste), large loads, fridges, freezers or other electrical goods, hazardous waste such as asbestos, batteries, liquids or gas bottles or business waste. 

Residents are advised to visit the council’s website and look up when and where their nearest drop-off service is being held. 

Further information about the service is available here.
