Rubbish collection

Our normal bin day is Wednesday – Thursday in a Bank Holiday week and on Thursday, Friday or Saturday over Christmas.

We have three bins – blue for ‘dry’ recyclable things like paper and plastics; green for garden and food waste and black for anything else.

Blue and green bins are collected one week, black the next.  In Hatley, our bins are normally emptied before 9.30 am.

NB  From 23rd March to 6th May 2020 (and possibly longer) no green bins will be collected because of the coronavirus outbreak – see this news item.

And if you lose track of whether it’s a blue / green or black week (even though we try to keep this website up to date), you can find out via the ‘which day‘ page on South Cambs District Council’s website.
