Rubbish, waste and recycling

The Household Waste Collection and Recycling Service is now provided by Amey, further information about the service is available from the waste collection and recycling page of Amey's Greener Peterborough website.

Please note:

1) 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. 

2) 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.
