Cost of living support

Colchester Borough Council is providing support for residents facing the cost of living crisis.

Christmas collections

Your recycling and rubbish collection day will not change over the Christmas period

Christmas collection changes 

In the event of collections being disrupted due to the Christmas and New Year bank holidays, we will update this page with the latest collection information.

You should put your rubbish and recycling out for collection as normal unless told otherwise.

We create 30% more waste over the festive period. Most of us recycle a lot during and after Christmas, but are we getting it right? Check what you can recycle in Colchester.
