Stop Press 20th June 2017: Recycling

Colchester Borough Council are currently out of Recycling Boxes but have confirmed that it is possible to mix cans and bottles in the one box. If you do not have a box call CBC Recycling on 01206 282700 for more information. CBC say you can use an alternative plastic box for bottles and cans in the meantime. You can also mix bottles and cans in the same box and they will be collected. The next blue week is 28th June. There is a link to the new recycling calendar on the CBC website (click here) but as this does not work in some internet browsers, we have scanned a copy of the recycling calendar which can be downloaded here.

 If you need Garden Bags don't forget to get your voucher number from Colchester Borough Council by completing the form here.



CBC have a list of collection points for recycling items here. (This may not work on some Internet browsers)
