Colchester Borough Council will soon be sending the new 2019/20 Recycling Calendar to residents across the borough, delivered with their Council Tax bill.
Don’t forget, you can always look up your collection dates and details online at www.colchester.gov.uk/recycling Using your postcode, you can check which day your collection is due, whether you are on a Blue or Green Week, what should go out that week and what can and cannot be recycled.
You can also download a replacement calendar and report a missed collection.
Remember, you can help us keep Colchester looking the best it can be by not littering. As well as waste bins and recycling bins, we also have special bins in the Town Centre just for gum.
You really can’t miss them: they’re bright pink and dotted all over town. The gum inside gets taken away and made into new bins – clever hey?!

And remember, Gum Litter Blows…So Bin It!
