Refuse, Waste Collection and Recycling

Household Collections

Rochford District Council provided three bins to all residents, including flats and parkland homes. One for compostables, one for recyclables and one for non-recyclables.

Bins should be put at the boundary of your property by 7am on your collection day. The compostable bins are collected weekly, along with either the non-recyclable or recyclable bins, which are collected on an alternate week basis.
