Christmas Bins

Council Provides Additional Free Recycling for Christmas

 

At Christmas we all have many more things which can be recycled including gift wrapping, boxes, cards and even your disposable foil trays and Christmas crackers! 

 

To encourage recycling Bedford Borough Council is offering ten free orange recycling sacks to all households over Christmas and New Year. Any additional recycling in orange sacks, left next to orange lidded bins on your allocated collection day, will be collected by our crews.

 

The free orange sacks can be picked up from the following locations between the 12th December 2016 and 6th January 2017:

 

Bedford Central Library, Putnoe Library, Wootton Library, Bromham Library, Kempston Town Library, the Customer Service Centre (Horne Lane, Bedford), Borough Hall, and the Household Waste Recycling Centre (Barkers Lane, Bedford). Some Parish Council’s will also have a supply of orange sacks to distribute to their villages, please contact your local Parish Council for more information.

 

Collections days during the week beginning December 26th will be different, and unlike previous years collections will be made on a bank holiday (December 27th). In addition, some collections will be different for the first week of the New Year; so it is important to make sure you know check when your collections will be. Changes to collections over the Christmas and New Year period were detailed in a leaflet sent to all households in October and can be found by searching your postcode at www.bedford.gov.uk/xmasbins

 

In addition, as the festive season approaches Bedford Borough Council’s Waste and Recycling Team would like to remind residents that they operate a number of sites across the borough at which you can recycle your real Christmas tree. Locations and opening times will be published on www.bedford.gov.uk/xmasbins
