Garden waste collections to resume from 27 February 

Following the winter break, we are pleased to announce the restart of household kerbside garden waste collections across Central Bedfordshire.   


Our crews will be springing into action to collect garden waste from 27 February, on your normal recycling day.   


Remember to place your bin out by 7am on your recycling day with all garden waste inside your garden bin/bags.  If you have any large branches, trunks or plants, these can be included if they are cut into smaller pieces.
