Bins and recycling

Recycling and waste services to return to council operation


Increased volumes of recycling are being put out and residents are being urged to help crews by correctly sorting boxes. We’re also asking residents to park sensibly to allow the crews to access kerbside waste.

See my blog post (24th March 2020) on how you can help our bin collection crews and keep them safe.

There are some changes to normal collections days over the Christmas and New Year period to accommodate for bank holidays.

There will be no garden waste collections from 18th December until 18th January 2021
Christmas tree collection (up to 2m high minus pot and decorations) for registered garden waste properties only between 18th-29th January 2021

Please place wrapping paper recycling with cardboard recycling. Remove all tape and decoration. No metallic, foil, plastic-lined or ‘shiny’ wrapping paper.

Where your recycling goes


See this page for information (and FAQs).


From April 2021 an annual charge for garden waste collections (£50 per bin) is being introduced. The council will send out a letter in January 2021 with details on how to sign up to the new service and options for registered users of the current service. I chair the committee scrutinising the introduction of this service and will be happy to answer any questions.


North Somerset Council offers a collection service for bulky household items such as domestic appliances, mattresses and furniture. This service is operated by Changing Lives , a local charity.

Call Council Connect on 01934 888802 to request a collection.


Our crews collect from 8,000 homes every day.
