Our waste and recycling services empty your rubbish, recycling and food waste bins regularly. We also promote green living with recycling centres, waste prevention schemes and events.
Festive Christmas and New Year bin collection dates
Each household should have a Big Bin for recycling, a Little Bin for waste that can't be recycled and a food waste container.
If you run a business, you need to apply for a commercial waste and recycling collection.
We collect rubbish, recycling, food waste and garden waste from homes. You can also arrange collections for larger household items.
Going green means living a more eco-friendly life by cutting down on waste and reducing your carbon emissions
You can take rubbish, recycling and other items to our recycling centres. Check what each centre takes, find out what happens to your recycling and how you can reduce waste.
We have a street cleaning team in Bournemouth, but they need your help to keep the streets litter-free.
