This page provides you with information on what can and cannot be placed in the blue recycling bins and bags.
If you wish to request a blue bin or bag or report a missing or damaged bin, please complete our Request a new/replacement blue bin/blue bags form.
Please note a charge will be made to replace lost/stolen bins and for additional recycling bin requests. If you are moving into a new or previously empty property and wish to request commencement of waste and recycling collections, please contact Customer Services on 01756 700600. You must be registered for Council Tax to be eligible for household waste recycling collections.
Collection Frequency: Every two weeks (alternative week to the green bin or lilac bags collection).
Tip: There is no need to remove staples, but please remove any tape
Please ensure there is no food waste on any cardboard placed in the bag
If your bag is found to contain any items other than paper and cardboard, we will not be able to empty your bag. It will be your responsibility to remove any contaminating items before your next collection.
Additional paper and cardboard will be collected if placed in a carrier bag and placed alongside the blue bag for collection.
Additional blue bags can be collected from our offices at 1 Belle Vue Square, Broughton Road, Skipton, BD23 1FJ. Blue bags can also be requested online by completing our Request a new/replacement blue bin/blue bags form or by contacting Customer Services on 01756 700600.
