Refuse collections to resume on Monday 15 February

Tags: refuse collections, recycling, waste

Following this week’s severe weather, which led to the cancellation of all refuse collections in the district, East Suffolk Norse will resume collections on Monday 15 February.

‘Catch up’ collections will be taking place and during these, bagged side waste will be accepted.

Collection days will remain the same, however the particular bin being emptied may be different for the next two weeks to ensure all outstanding collections are completed. There will be double collections on some days.

All residents are usually divided in to one of two collection calendars - details for YOUR revised collections are below.

You can also see what days your bins are usually collected by using
our ‘Bin Collection Day Finder’.


We are on Calender 2, information below:-


(your blue bin collection was missed this week commencing 8th February)

Week commencing 15th February - on your normal collection day:

Black/grey bin collection (no side waste) NORMAL SERVICE

Blue bin collection (side waste accepted) CATCH UP SERVICE  No Green Bin!

Week commencing 22nd February - on your normal collection day:

Blue bin collection only (no side waste) NORMAL SERVICE No Green Bin!


These collections are subject to the weather conditions. All collections will return to the normal schedule from 1 March.

To enable crews to focus solely on the general household waste and recycling collections, garden waste collections will be suspended for two weeks and will resume on Monday 1 March.
For us Monday 8th March will be the actual starting date.

This means that some households will unfortunately miss two scheduled garden waste collections, whilst some will miss one collection. They apologise for any inconvenience this causes however the clearing of normal waste and recycling during this difficult period is their priority.
