Rubbish, waste and recycling
The Household Waste Collection and Recycling Service is now
provided by Enterprise Peterborough, further information about the
service is available from the Waste
Collection and Recycling page of the Enterprise Peterborough
Please note: On windy days crews will
take every precaution to return bins in such a way as to minimize
chances of them being blown into the road – this may mean your
food bins are left lying down rather than leaving them standing for
the wind to blow them over and risk damage or loss.
Please note: Where bin collections are not possible due to
safety concerns collection crews will return to empty those bins as
soon as it is safe to do so.
