Waste collections - adverse weather conditions

Due to the adverse weather, bin collections will start earlier tomorrow (Friday August 12) to allow our crews to work in cooler temperatures.
Residents with a bin collection due tomorrow should leave their bins out by 6am. Normal service will resume Monday August 15.

Disposal of face coverings and personal protective equipment (PPE)

Please put face masks and disposable gloves in the normal waste at home for disposal in your grey bin.

Do not put them in a beige or burgundy recycling bin as they cannot be recycled through conventional recycling facilities.

Thank you - in 2019/20 48% of waste collected in Bolton was recycled. Between April and September 2020 we recycled 50.1%. Keep up the good work!
