Information about kerbside recycling collections
Craven District Council provides an alternative week collection of recycling and general waste. For further details, please see the Household waste - rubbish collections page.
For details on what goes in your recycling bins and bags, please see the Recycling - Bags and Containers page.
Every property will have received a new collection day calendar for waste and recycling for 2011-13. Collection dates for the brown bin can be found on a sticker placed on your brown bin. In addition, we have introduced a new search facility that 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 request a refuse and recycling calendar by contacting Customer Services on 01756 700600.
All bins and bags should be placed safely at the kerbside or designated collection point by 7.00am on the day of collection, ready for emptying.
In the event that we have missed your recycling collection, please complete our Report a missed recycling/refuse collection form or contact our Customer Services team on 01756 700600. If we have attached a contamination tag to your 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 recycling bin and present the bin for emptying on the next scheduled collection day.
If you are unable to move your waste and recycling bins to the kerbside for collection due to a disability or medical condition or if you are aged 80 years and over you may be eligible for our assisted collection scheme. Please see
