All houses in Watford will see changes to their waste and recycling collection service from September 2020.
If you live in a flat in a block of six or more please see this page.
Weekly food waste collection service
service and new bin
You will receive a new food bin (23 litre), which is larger than your kitchen caddy (7 litre). It has a lockable handle making it easy and convenient for you to put out for collections. Find out more about this new service.
Collections for garden waste are changing to a chargeable sign up service. This means that if you want your garden waste to be collected, you will need to sign up on a yearly basis. Your green bin will continue to be collected every two weeks if you have signed up to this service. Find out more about how much it costs and how it works.
Fortnightly non-recyclable waste collection service
Collected every two weeks
CHANGE to fortnightly collection
Collections for general waste (non-recyclable) are changing to a fortnightly collection service. Over 60% of household waste is recyclable, please use your new brown outdoor food bin and blue-lidded bin to recycle as much as possible. To recycle your garden waste, sign up to our chargeable garden waste service, use a home composter or take to your local Household Waste and Recycling Centre (HWRC)
