Refuse Collections

To make our bin collection service more efficient and reduce the cost of waste disposal, we are introducing alternate week bin collections. Alternate week collections started in the Keighley and Shipley constituencies on 2 May 2017 and from 4 July 2017 the rest of the Bradford district will follow.

Alternate week bin collections mean that:

  • The council will still come to empty a bin every week, but will alternate between bins
  • Your general waste (green) bin will be emptied one week and your recycling (grey) bin will be emptied the following week
  • Your collection day will be the same day for both bins but emptied on alternate weeks
  • We will only empty one general waste bin
  • You can have more than one recycling bin
