Get ready to upcycle the way we recycle

New waste recycling service in Dacorum
New waste recycling service in Dacorum

Brand new bins which mark a change in the way our recycling is collected have been delivered to Dacorum homes from this week.

The roll-out of kerbside caddies for food waste and blue-lidded wheely bins for recycling and cardboard comes ahead of a change in service on November 24, rendering the current boxes and baskets redundant.

When the service changes, cardboard and food waste will no longer be accepted in the green wheely bins.

Once the new scheme has begun, the grey general waste bin and blue-lidded recycling bins will be collected fortnightly.

The green bins for garden waste only will also be collected fortnightly from February to November, and there will be a weekly collection of the kerbside caddy for food waste.

A collection calendar and information leaflet have been included with bin deliveries, and more information is available by visiting or calling 01442 228000 and asking for Waste Services.
