Swindon's waste and recycling collections notice

We apologise for the inconvenience caused by recent delays to our waste and recycling collections. We continue to make progress in reducing the backlog and are currently running between one and two days behind on recycling collections. Refuse (wheelie bin) collections continue to take place on the scheduled day. Thank you for your patience as we continue to bring down the recycling backlog.

Our customer service staff are working incredibly hard to answer resident calls and to provide you with as much information as possible. Whilst we recognise the concern caused by these delays to some residents, we ask that residents treat our staff with respect at all times.

For further information, go to the bins, rubbish and recycling collection pages.
