NEW 2011/12 Recycling Calendar out now

As in previous years Colchester residents are now receiving a copy of the new 2011/12 recycling calendar in the post with their Council Tax bill.  This year deliveries will be made between 9 and 18 March.  The recycling calendar applies from April 2011 onwards unless you use communal recycling and rubbish bins.  Please look out for your calendar and help Colchester recycle even more this year.

The Calendar includes information on:

  • what you can recycle in blue and green weeks
  • when and how to put your recycling out for collection
  • the enhanced garden waste collection of up to 8 sacks from 1 November 2011 

Visit for information and online services to help you reduce, reuse and recycle your rubbish, home compost and much more.   Alternatively email [email protected] or phone 01206 282700.  The Recycling Calendar can be viewed online where you can print replacement copies.  It is also available at a range of outlets across the borough including the Customer Service Centre on Colchester High Street.  You can also go online to find information on when rolls of recycling and rubbish bags will be delivered to households (except to flats with communal bins), and find where to get more recycling boxes, bags and sacks.

For collection news, handy tips and local events register online for the Recycling and Waste E-Newsletter and ‘like‘ Recycle for Colchester on facebook.

Thank you for recycling your rubbish!
