Recycling and Rubbish

Charnwood Borough Council are working very hard to reduce the amount of rubbish going to landfill and would like you to help them exceed their 46% recycling target.

For full details of the scheme, including days on which your bins are collected, please visit http://www.charnwood.gov.uk/pages/recycling or read the Kerbside Recycling Leaflet

Key points:

  • Check what you can and can’t recycle in Loughborough – it may be very different to the scheme you are used to at home
  • Whichever wheelie bin you are putting out, ensure the lid is completely closed so nothing can fall out! 
  • Never put side waste or excess bags out with the black wheelie bin – they won’t be collected and you could be fined!
  • Ensure your wheelie bin is on the edge of your property the night before collection day as the refuse lorries start at 7am.
  • Once your bin is emptied put it back on your property (within 24hours).  Where possible wheelie bins should be OUT OF SIGHT to ensure the area is left neat and tidy. 
  • Households can only have ONE black wheelie bin so it is imperative that you recycle all you can.  If you create extra waste then the onus is on you to dispose of it at the local tip. You'll find more information by following this link.

If you have problems with management of waste or recycling then please contact the Environmental Services for help and advice. 01509 634563 or cleaner.greener@charnwood.gov.uk
