Green waste collections – restarting 1st March

Message from East Suffolk Council regarding garden waste collections

Following the recent severe weather this has led to the cancellation of all refuse collections in the district. East Suffolk Norse are now carrying out “catch up” collections.

To enable crews to focus solely on the general household waste and recycling collections, garden waste collections will be suspended for two weeks and will resume on Monday 1st of March.

This means that some households will unfortunately miss two scheduled garden waste collections, whilst some will miss one collection. We apologise for any inconvenience this causes however the clearing of normal waste and recycling during this difficult period is our priority.

Please note an extension will not be added to subscriptions.

Green Bin Collections Suspended

As of 27 March 2020, East Suffolk Council has temporarily suspended the collection of green bins, until further notice.  This is in response to the COVID-19 emergency and aims to protect crew safety and prioritise household waste and recycling collections.  The advice from East Suffolk Council is:

All current green bin subscriptions will be extended, once the service resumes, to reflect the period of time that collections were missed within your subscription period.

There is also concern about the risk of increased fly-tipping. If you see any, please report it: https://www.eastsuffolk.gov.uk/waste/fly-tipping/how-to-report-fly-tipping/
