Dust cart
recycling and rubbish collections

Broadland collects recycling and rubbish on alternate weeks for our residents. Your grey recycling bin is collected one week and your green rubbish bin is collected the next.

Some of our residents also receive a food waste collection which is collected weekly on the same collection day as your recycling and rubbish bins.

Broadland residents can also subscribe to our garden waste service. If you choose to use this chargeable service, your brown garden bin is collected fortnightly. Find out more on the garden waste collection page.

On your collection days, please put your bins or collection containers on the boundary of your property that is closest to the highway. All lids should be closed.

We do not accept extra rubbish, garden waste or food waste, please make sure it is placed inside the bin and the lid is closed. We can accept extra recycling, please put it in a cardboard box next to your grey recycling bin for collection.

Bins that weigh over 80kg cannot be emptied safely by our collection crews.

Please do not put hot BBQ ashes in your rubbish bin, as hot ash can melt the plastic. Please wait for them to cool down before you put them in.
