Bins and recycling

The green wheeled bin has started collection

The garden waste collections have started after the planned winter break from green wheeled bin collections. One half of the borough's collection started from the 16 February and the second half from the 23 February. 

The green wheeled bin is for garden waste only. Cardboard can be placed in the blue lidded bin and food waste in the kerbside caddy.

The garden waste calendars were delivered at the start of February. This needs to be used alongside the waste collection calendar that you received last year with the new blue lidded bin.
You can check the collection day and download a copy of your calendar for any of your bins on the bin collection postcode checker by pressing the button below:

Flat and High Street Recycling Service Changes

We are currently looking at putting recycling service changes into place for flats and High Streets which  will start later in the year. Until then, the online collection day postcode checker will not work for your property. If you want to find out when your collection day is you can submit an online request.

Winter Weather Advice

In case of extreme weather conditions such as snow or ice, have a read of our frequently asked questions on winter weather.

Household Waste Recycling Centres day changes

There are planned changes for the opening times of all Household Waste Recycling Centres in Hertfordshire starting from January 2015. Please visit the Recycling Centres page for more information.

Your new Recycle for Dacorum service started on 24 November 2014

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.
