Changes to waste services

Here in Reading we're already recycling lots of our household waste, but we could do more. That's why we've launched a new campaign, 'Reading Does', to help everyone recycle more with a target of recycling at least 50% of our household waste.

To achieve this, we're introducing weekly household food waste collections and swapping your 240 litre grey wheeled bin for a 140 litre black wheeled bin.

Over the coming year you'll see more and better information about how to recycle your household waste here, on social media channels and through your door. You'll receive full details about how to take part in food waste collections nearer the time.
