Waste and recycling

Waste collection crews are taking a number of precautions to help prevent the spread of Covid19, including the use of gloves and regular use of hand sanitiser. There are further steps everyone can take to help us and help protect our key workers. Please wash your hands before putting your bins out and clean your bin handles before bringing the bin back in.
Please do not put out extra waste next to your bin. If you have had a clear-out please store the waste at your house, in your garden or garage, until the current government restrictions are lifted to reduce pressure on collection crews. 
Waste collections will start from 6am each day rather than 7am until further notice.
Bulky waste collections and bin delivery have been resumed.
Both recycling centres - Island Road, Reading and Longshot Lane, Bracknell - are open by appointment only -  the booking form will be taken down when all available slots are filled.
Bottle and clothing banks - due to increased demand we are increasing collections from the banks. If the banks are too full to use, please take your recycling home and try again when the banks have been emptied.
