Once again there will be a winter break for all kerbside collections of household garden waste across Central Bedfordshire.
The collections will be suspended for 12 weeks from Monday, 5 December 2022 until Friday, 24 February 2023 inclusive. Residents are encouraged to check their last collection date for their area, which will be either the week commencing Monday, 21 November or week commencing Monday, 28 November. The collections will resume on Monday, 27 February 2023 or Monday 6 March. All other waste collections will operate as normal.
Over the winter only very low volumes of garden waste are collected, and it is therefore not cost effective to provide the service during these months.
During the break, garden waste can still be recycled at the council’s four Household Waste Recycling Centres which are open seven days a week from 9am to 5pm, including bank holidays. For further detail, including the opening times over the Christmas and New Year period, please visit the council’s website: https://www.centralbedfordshire.gov.uk/tidytips.
Residents with enough space in their gardens are encouraged to home compost and can access tips and advice on the council’s website.
