Waste collections

Following the State Funeral of Her Majesty The Queen, Reading Borough Council took the decision to ensure that waste collections continued to take place on the day in order to provide consistency of service for our residents.

To ensure that service on that day happened respectfully, collections began early at 5am but ended the day at 10am to allow staff to pay their respects and avoid any disturbance for residents.

If we were unable to collect from you before collections ended at 10am, please leave your bin out as we will be catching up with any remaining bins that we can’t get to over the following few days.
