Covid 19 - Update on Cornwall’s rubbish and recycling services

Kerbside collections of rubbish (weekly) and recycling (fortnightly) continue on their usual days.

But residents should note that bin crews may not arrive at their usual collection times over the coming weeks. Please put rubbish and recycling out by 7am, and it should be collected by 6 pm.

Please report any missed collections on the following day. 

We remind you that:

  • Household Waste Recycling Centres are closed
  • Bulky Collections have been suspended

Until these services start again please store any waste or recycling that cannot be put out on the kerbside collection.

Small electrical appliances and batteries should not be put in black sacks or bins. Redundant small electrical appliances can be recycled, but not on the kerbside collections. Please hold on to them until the Household Waste Recycling Centres re-open.

It is important that those households with a possible coronavirus infection follow the Public Health England guidance:

Personal waste (such as used tissues) and disposable cleaning cloths should be stored securely within disposable rubbish bags. These bags should be placed into another bag, tied securely and kept separate from other waste. This should be put aside for at least 72 hours before being placed out for collection on your next collection day. 

Our crews are doing a great job keeping the bins emptied and your recycling collected.

You can help them by not putting out extra items for collection. Please just put out your normal household rubbish and recycling.

Thank you all for keeping Cornwall’s waste and recycling properly and safely handled.
