Collection Days

To ensure a problem free collection service please ensure your bin is presented at your property boundary by 7.00am (previously it was 6.30am) on your collection day.

Do not overfill your bin or leave additional garden waste next to the bin as this will not be collected.

You are able to view your bin collection days on My Breckland by entering your postcode

Our handy Garden Waste Calendars contains details of adjustments to collection dates over the Bank Holiday periods and advice on what to put in the bin.

Week 1 brown bin collections take place on the same week that we empty green bins.

Week 2 brown bin collections take place on the same week that we empty black bins.
