Bin collections during COVID-19

Last updated 11 May 2020 

 

During the current coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, we're working as hard as we can to ensure we can continue to collect your waste, while prioritising our most essential collections. 

In order to do this, it may mean we have to collect some of your bins less frequently, or stop some collections all together for a period of time.

Please see below for latest updates

Please remember not to overfill the bins so they can be moved by the crews - the lid must be able to shut.

 

Advice for anyone self-isolating

For the safety of others, including our crews, we ask that you double wrap your waste (put one bin bag inside another) and store it securely for 72 hours somewhere that cannot be accessed by the public.

You can then place these bags into your general rubbish (refuse) bin for your normal collection day. 

Further advice for households in Suffolk, including waste disposal
