Bins, recycling and street cleaning

Recycling is quick and easy to do, just choose the right bin for your items. Doing more to reduce, reuse and recycle will help save you money and help the environment too. Any waste that you cannot recycle is now taken to the Energy from Waste plant in Great Blakenham.

If you have excess waste and have employed a private company to dispose of it (such as a skip hire company) you should ensure they are registered and validated. You can check online with the Environment Agency or call them on 08708 506506 and ask for an Instant Waste Carrier Validation Check. 

Your rubbish is your responsibility. If you fail to dispose of your rubbish properly you could be fined up to £5,000 under the Household Duty of Care regulations
