Dorset Council bin collectionHere’s the latest update (as of 9th April 2020) from Dorset Council regarding changes to bins, recycling and litter collections:

  • Most food, recycling, rubbish and glass collections are taking place as usual, including on Good Friday and Bank Holiday Monday
  • Household recycling centres remain closed as trips there are not covered by central government “essential travel”
  • Street cleansing (inc. bin emptying) is still happening in most areas, if less frequently
  • Garden waste service remains suspended – we are continually reviewing the situation and available staffing, and will resume the service as soon as we can

To help our front-line collection crews and other teams, there are many things you can do:-

Thank you so much to everyone in Dorset who has shown love and support for our workers during the pandemic. It really does make a difference.
