Colchester Borough Council have announced today that fortnightly waste and recycling collections are to restart across Colchester from this Monday, the 22nd June.


From Monday you are advised to use the 2020/21 recycling calendar, which covers the period until March 2021, or visit, to check their regular collection information.


The announcement of a return to a normal service – except for textiles – follows temporary changes introduced in April in line with Government advice on prioritising waste collections during the coronavirus crisis.


Councillor Martin Goss, Portfolio Holder for Waste, Environment and Transportation, said: “I would like to thank our residents for their understanding and for working with us to support the temporary changes to our recycling and rubbish collections since lockdown began.


“I would especially like to thank our waste and recycling crews – our frontline heroes – for their hard work and dedication throughout this crisis. Despite running a reduced service since early April, they have continued to deal with vast amounts of waste. We salute you.


“Now, thanks to a phenomenal amount of work that has gone on behind the scenes, we are ready to get our recycling collections up and running as normal.”
