How to put out your rubbish for collection

What you need to do

We collect refuse (household waste), garden waste and recycling every two weeks:

By 7am on the morning of your collection day, you need to put your bins, boxes and bags at your collection point. (Your collection point is located on the boundary with the public highway, usually a pavement or road.)

We will not collect your recycling and rubbish if you have:

  • Put your rubbish in the wrong bin. Find out what goes in your bins
  • Overfilled your bin, and the lid does not fully close
  • Put your bin out on the wrong collection day
  • Put your rubbish next to or on top of your bin

The only items we will collect outside of a bin, box or bag, on your collection day are:

  • Clothes and paired shoes, if you put them a red textile bag or a labelled carrier bag
  • Extra plastics, paper, card/cardboard (cardboard must be flat-packed). All items should be placed in a clear bag or cardboard box to prevent any items blowing away

All items must be clean.

Get a large item collected

If you have a large item that will not fit in your bin, you can request a large item collection

If you live in a flat

Many flats in the borough of Hinckley & Bosworth have communal recycling bins, which we collect. You can check your bin day online

If you do not have access to communal recycling bins, you can take your rubbish to a recycling and household waste site (tip) or a local recycling bank. More about tips and recycling banks
