Bins and recycling

Revised Christmas and New Year Bank Holiday waste collections

There will be changes to your waste collection in December and January because of the Christmas and New Year Bank Holidays.

Find out more about the revised collection dates for your waste.

 Your new Recycle for Dacorum service started on 24 November

The bins were delivered together from 20 October until 23 November. There should have been an information pack and calendar attached to the blue lidded bin. Your collection day may change so be sure to check your calendar.

Find out more about the changes to your collection service, view the leaflet and find answers to your frequently asked questions.

Waste collection calendars

You should have a waste collection calendar for the collection of your blue lidded wheeled bin, kerbside caddy and grey wheeled bin for November 2014 to November 2015. Your garden waste calendar will be delivered as a bin hanger in January 2015.
If you do not have a calendar go to our waste collection calendars page to view yours.

Order a kitchen caddy

Every household in the borough is entitled to one free kitchen caddy if you have not already received one. The caddy will help to separate food waste in the kitchen. It can then be emptied into either your home compost bin or into the kerbside caddy for weekly collection.
