Recycling, rubbish and waste

Waste collection changes - new service begins

Collection days and collection frequencies have changed for most households throughout the borough of Bury.  With your support the changes we are making will help boost recycling, reduce carbon emissions and save over £800,000 to protect other public services.  From now on we will empty your:  grey bin once every three weeks; green bin once every three weeks; blue bin once every three weeks; and brown bin once every two weeks.  Remember to always put your bins out by 7am on your collection day as collection times vary.  For more information about the changes go to the 'Waste collection changes' web page.
