If your property only has space to accommodate one wheeled bin, priority will be given to the provision of a blue lidded bin.
Food & Garden Waste collections are made using brown paper sacks. Up to 4 sacks will be replaced per collection.
Materials will only be collected by any service if they are contained in the correct sack. The equivalent of 1 refuse sack per week is provided annually. Additional black sacks will be collected, but must be provided by the householder.
Flats or Multiple Occupancy Properties
For flats or a house of multiple occupancy, we may provide larger, shared bins dependent on property size and available space. Bins will be collected from a designated area, agreed by the East Cambs Street Scene Team, and returned to the same location. If there is no available space, the Alternative Service will be offered.
Loose rubbish, incorrect items or sacks left outside of the designated containers wil not be collected and could result in the service being withdrawn.
