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
To make up for missed collections during the service suspension and to support those households with additional garden waste, we are providing a temporary drop-off service for garden waste at several locations across the borough, starting 23 May.
Dates, locations and times for our drop-off service are as follows:
You can bring all types of garden waste that would normally be collected as part of your kerbside collection.
No, but only bring waste or items you are able to unload yourself.
Taking excessive garden waste may cause delays for others wanting to drop off garden waste.
Garden waste collections will resume as normal from 25 May so any garden waste you are unable to take to the drop-off can be put out for collection. We collect either one brown wheelie bin or four garden sacks.
Colchester Borough Council staff will be at the site, but they will be unable to assist residents and will be keeping to the 2 metre social distancing rule at all times.
Please only bring items you can unload safely yourself.
There will be signs with instructions around the drop-off service location, along with cones and barriers to ensure everyone keeps a 2 metre distance at all times.
