Household waste - rubbish collections
Information on the household waste collection service.
Craven District Council now operates an alternate weekly collection service, where residual rubbish stored in a green bin or lilac sacks is collected one week, recycling on the next week. This has enabled the Council to provide kerbside recycling collections of glass, cans, plastic bottles, paper and card to all residents.
So why have we decided to change from a weekly collection service to alternate weekly?
We have to significantly increase recycling and reduce the amount of biodegradable waste going to landfill. As well as the ever increasing costs of waste disposal, sending recyclables to landfill is a waste of our limited resources; also landfills produce gases that contribute to climate change. If we fail to increase our recycling rates, the Council and council tax payers could be hit with large fines.

How to find your collection dates
We have introduced a new search facility than enables residents to view their collection details online. To find your collection details, please go to When will my bins be emptied page. You can also either request a refuse and recycling collection day calendar by contacting Customer Services on 01756 700600.
Placing your refuse out for collection
All bins/bags should be placed safely at the kerbside or designated collection point by 7.00am on the day of collection.
In the unlikely event that we have missed your refuse and/or recycling collection, please complete our report a missed recycling/refuse collection form. If we have attached a contamination tag to your refuse or recycling bin this indicates that you may have placed waste materials in the bin that cannot be recycled, or recyclable materials in the wrong bin. If this is the case please remove these items from the bin and present the bin for emptying on the next scheduled collection day.
We offer an assisted collection service for those finding it difficult to put out their refuse and recycling for collection. Please see our Assisted Refuse Collection page for more details.
