Future changes to rubbish and recycling collections


We're rolling out new weekly food waste and fortnightly recycling and rubbish collections across Cornwall, area by area from 2023 to 2025.

You can find out more about the rollout of the new collections, when to expect the changes in your area and how to use the new service on our 'New Food Waste, Recycling and Rubbish Service' pages.

Changes to your collections

  • You will be able to recycle your food waste once the new service is introduced in your area. This will be done in phases beginning in 2023
  • We will give most households a wheelie bin when the service changes. If you cannot reasonably store a bin, we will give you a reusable protective sack instead.
