Refuse collection


All households are issued with an annual supply of 80 blue plastic bags to be used for the weekly household waste collection. Additional blue refuse bags are available from Swallowfield Parish Stores. If anyone has a problem with volume, please ring the waste services team at WBC on 0118 974 6338. WBC recommends that the blue bags are tied up and put out in your black dustbin to avoid animals getting into them.
