We provide a kerbside waste collection service to residents in Nuneaton and Bedworth; including a wheeled bin service for household residents and communal bin services for flat residents.

This is a fortnightly collection service. Your brown lid recycling and garden green bins will be collected on the alternate week to your black household waste bin.

General waste is collected weekly and recycling fortnightly. Collections take place on different days throughout the week. General waste is usually collected the first half of the week and recycling later in the week.

  • Waste must be put within the bin. Waste left outside of the bin, inside or outside of the bin store, will be classed as fly-tipping.
