Regular recycling, non-recycling and food collections are continuing as normal at the moment. There may be delays to some services where this collected later than usual or on a different day.
If your household is self-isolating, personal waste (such as used tissues) and disposable cleaning cloths can be stored securely within disposable rubbish bags. These bags should be placed into another bag, tied securely and kept separate from other waste. This should be put aside for at least 72 hours before being put in your usual external household waste bin.
Other household waste can be disposed of as normal.
Essex County Council’s Recycling Centre (the dump) on River Way remains open. See the Love Essex website for guidance on visiting the dump
Our green waste subscription service and bagged collection are both still operating as normal.
Our bulky waste collection service resumed on 1 March 2021.
