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
From 10 June 2019, you will need to download a voucher to collect new or replacement recycling containers from your local stockist. This includes clear bags, garden sacks, food caddies, and glass/can boxes. The containers will still be free of charge.
If you need a replacement wheelie bin, please use the form here.
Why do I need a voucher?
The voucher system helps your local stockist monitor and maintain the number of containers they have available for the local community.
How the voucher works
Once you have filled in the form to request a voucher for your free containers, we will send you an email containing your collection code and confirmation of the containers you would like. Print the email off or take it on your mobile phone to your local stockist and show it to them. They will then give you your containers.
These are the places where you can get recycling boxes and bags.
We ensure that stock of recycling bags and containers are replenished urgently and on a regular basis.
Order your Recycling Containers and Voucher
If you can't get your recycling and rubbish out to the front of your house, we can help with our Assisted Collection Scheme. Read more about it here.
If you are registered with the Assisted Collection scheme and you receive help with your recycling and rubbish collections, you can order recycling containers, bags and white garden waste sacks to be delivered to your home.
If you are not at home when we come to deliver your order, we will leave it in a safe place.
