Household Waste and Recycling Collection

Find my bin collection day

The search facility


We are currently experiencing some operational issues in the Wellingborough area which is unfortunately impacting on bin collections. We will continue to try to minimize the impact to residents, but there may be some days where we are unable to complete all the collection rounds on their schedule days. We are working hard to resolve these issues. If your bin is not collected on your scheduled day, please leave it presented and we will try to return as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience. 


Garden waste

Some residents will present their garden waste bin on the same week as their recycling, while others will present garden waste on the same week as their household waste. 

Garden waste is not collected during the winter period in Wellingborough and the surrounding villages. 

Access Issues

Our collection crews are experiencing difficulties accessing some roads due to the position of parked cars. Residents are asked to ensure vehicles are parked considerately on collection day to allow access for the waste collection vehicle. If the road is blocked, it may mean we cannot empty your bins. Please remember, if the bin lorry is unable to get down the road, it is likely that the emergency services would also have difficulty.
