Chelmsford City Council

Changes to collection days

From 29 October, we are changing our recycling and waste collection routes. This means your collection days may change.

You can find out your collection day on your new calendar, which we will deliver in September and October. We will update the online calendars from Monday 28 October 2019.

We will also supply new food waste and plastics bags during this time.


Why we are making the changes

We are making these changes to ensure our service is efficient, environmentally friendly and includes new housing in the city. These changes will make collections greener and better value for public money.

Your usual collection service will continue, but your day may change. You should still put out the same recycling and waste materials and follow the existing process to report a missed collection.


Missing calendars or bags

If you have not received a collection calendar or recycling bags by mid-October, you can call us on 01245 615800 or contact us online.
