Further measures have been taken by Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council to reduce the impact of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) whilst keeping vital services running. Some of these changes impact our Waste Services, you can find out more below.
You can check when your bin is due to be collected by using our collection search tool here.
Residual and recycling waste
Residual waste and recycling waste collections will continue on the usual scheduled days, but the times residents usually have their collections will vary.
Residents are reminded to put their bins out at 7am on their normal waste collection day, to be brought back in at 7pm that evening. Refuse loaders will not return if people do not present their bins.
We are pleased to let residents know that fortnightly garden waste collections are returning throughout the borough. Garden waste collections will take place from the week commencing 8 June 2020.
We would like to remind residents that garden waste bins will be collected on the same day as their recycling bin.
Trade waste collections will continue to support local businesses which are still operating.
Dunsdale Household Waste and Recycling Centre
From Monday 13 July, Dunsdale Recycling Centre will be open to residents of the borough from 8am until 5pm daily - with vehicles requiring tipping permits only able to enter the site from 8am until 10am. The tip will also be accepting asbestos.
The recycling centre was previously open from 7am until 6pm to allow residents to dispose of the extra waste that may have built up during lockdown.
All previous social distancing measures remain in place and those entering the recycling centre will still require proof of residency in the borough.
All waste will be collected but will not be cleared until more than 72 hours have passed, which is the lifespan of the coronavirus outside of the human body. This is to protect council staff. Emptying litter bins
These will be emptied when required for public health reasons, but the council expects these will need emptying less frequently due to the government's instruction for members of the public to stay at home.
We will continue to monitor our services and make changes where we need to. We would like to thank residents for their patience at this time.
