New 2012/13 Recycling Calendar now out

Look out for your copy of the new 2012/13 recycling calendar in the post with your Council Tax bill during March.

The recycling calendar applies from April 2012 onwards unless you use communal recycling and rubbish bins. You can help Colchester recycle even more; our target this year is to recycle 43% of all the rubbish produced.

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 6 November

Visit to view the Recycling Calendar in alternative formats, along with 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.

Getting recycling containers is easy, visit to see when rolls of recycling and rubbish bags will be delivered to households (except to flats with communal bins). You can also find recycling containers stockists and an online order form.

For collection news, handy tips and local events register for the eCourier and follow YourColchester on twitter.

Thank you for recycling your rubbish!
