We're collecting any green bins no longer required

Published on Tuesday, 19th March 2019

We are now in a position to collect the green bins of residents who do not wish to opt-in to the garden waste service or retain their bin, following the launch of the new green bin collection service.

Removal of unwanted green bins will be starting next week - Monday, 25 March 2019 and will run until Friday, 5 April 2019, removal will take place on resident’s black bin collections days.

If you no longer require your green bin, please leave it out with your black bin, on your regular black bin collection day. Please make sure it’s empty and that it’s out by 7am and we will remove it that day.

If you need to empty your bin prior to your removal date, any green garden waste can be taken to Judkins Household Recycling Centre on Tuttle Hill free of charge in an unrestricted vehicle. 

We request that customers consider whether or not they are likely to require the service at any point in the future, before leaving the bin out to be removed. If in doubt we suggest that the bin is retained.

Opt-in to the green bin service or call 024 7637 6170. Alternatively, consider composting – Warwickshire County Council supply reduced price compost bins which can be bought online, from the Town Hall in Nuneaton, and the Civic Hall in Bedworth. Either pop in to the Town Hall or the Civic Hall for more information on the sale of composters and upcoming composting workshops, at which composters can be purchased at a discounted price.

The next composting workshop takes place at Bedworth Civic Hall on Friday, 8 March 2019 at 10:30am. There’s another one at Nuneaton Town Hall on Monday, 18 March 2019 at 6.30pm.

Councillor Jill Sheppard, Portfolio holder for Central Services and Refuse, said:

“We understand that the service is not required by all residents and have scheduled a collection of these unwanted bins as soon as we are able.

“We have worked closely with Warwickshire County Council to promote composting as an alternative for those residents who do not wish to opt-in to the green bin service; residents now have the option to purchase composters from as little as £10 from the Town Hall in Nuneaton and Bedworth Civic Hall.”
