Garden and Food Waste Collection

NB Suffolk Coastal District Council are moving over to a new 'paid for' brown bin service. To still use your brown bin you will need to have subscribed to the new Suffolk Coastal Garden Waste Scheme and placed the sticker you get given on your existing brown bin. If you have opted to receive a new larger green bin, it will be delivered in the autumn (October/November 18). There will be no need to move your sticker to your new green bin.

Your brown bin can be used for garden waste and all types of food, cooked or raw, shredded paper and cardboard.

Your brown bin is emptied fortnightly during the weeks highlighted on the bin collection round calendar. This will be the same day your blue lidded bin for recyclable materials is emptied.

Details of your collection day in each recycling week can be found on the online bin collection day finder.

Your bins should be out ready for emptying at 6am as collections start early. Please note that the time of collection may change at any time, so to avoid missing the collection, always put your bin out by 6am.

All bin collections are worked as normal on bank holidays, except Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day.

Futher details including what you can and cannot put in your brown/green bins can be found <here> along with an online <collection day finder>.

If you are not sure of your collection day, or haven't received a calendar, or have lost your copy, call Suffolk Coastal Services on 01394 444000 or email and they will confirm your collection day or send you a new calendar.
