Bins and Recycling

Binsinsetimage250x115

Our waste and recycling services empty your rubbish, recycling and food waste bins regularly. We also promote green living with recycling centres, waste prevention schemes and events.

Bin Collection Date 

Each household should have a Big Bin for recycling, which is collected fortnightly and a Little Bin for waste that can't be recycled, which is collected weekly. Food waste is collected as part of your normal weekly collection.

Commercial Waste and Recycling 

If you run a business, you need to apply for a commercial waste and recycling collection.

Bin Collections 

We collect rubbish, recycling, food waste and garden waste from homes. You can also arrange collections for larger household items.

Go Green 

Going green means living a more eco-friendly life by cutting down on waste and reducing your carbon emissions

Recycling  

You can take rubbish, recycling and other items to our recycling centres. Check what each centre takes, find out what happens to your recycling and how you can reduce waste.

Street Cleaning 

We have a street cleaning team in Bournemouth, but they need your help to keep the streets litter-free.
