Many flats in Chelmsford have communal recycling bins, which we collect. We list the collection day for selected flats.
We empty all recycling bins every two weeks, except for the food waste bins which we empty weekly. The collection day may vary.
We are a waste collection authority and are responsible for the provisions of recycling and waste bins and their collection.
We provide you with a reusable flats recycling bag to help you take your waste materials to the bin store. If you need a bag, you can contact us.
You and your Property Managing Agent are responsible for ensuring that the bin store area is safe, secure, clean. You and your agent must also make sure the bins are correctly presented for collection. This means all materials should be contained inside of the bins and the bin lid shut.
You need to speak to your Property Management Agent to discuss new or additional recycling arrangements in the first instance. They can contact us for more information.
We do not provide a service for the collection of garden waste from flats.
Your Property Management Agency is responsible for communal garden areas and the collection of garden waste for recycling. You can contact them for more information.
For flats where we provide food waste collections, we deliver a new roll of caddy liners each year around September/October. If you have not received these, you need to contact us by the end of October.
You can also buy caddy liners from supermarkets or you can use newspaper to line your caddy.
