Bournemouth Borough Council introduced the Big Bin, Little Bin kerbside collection scheme to help residents recycle more of their rubbish. Each household should have a large bin for recycling which is collected fortnightly and a smaller bin for all waste that can't be recycled which is collected weekly.
In the Big Bin (recycling bin), you can recycle:
Please DO NOT BAG your recycling, instead place it loose in your bin. Plastic bags may be reused or disposed of in the refuse bin.
Please WASH & SQUASH your recycling to remove food or drink remnants and to ensure that the maximum amount can fit in your bin.
If you will not receive your fortnightly recycling collection due to the collection falling on Christmas or Boxing Day excess recycling will be collected on your next recycling collection, but must be in a recycling bag or cardboard box. Recycling will not be collected if it is in black sacks. Recycling bags can be collected from libraries from 16 December. For more information about arrangements for Waste and Recycling over the festive period please read our Festive Rubbish| feature.
