The Council collects refuse weekly from all properties in
the Borough. You can find your
collection day by searching for your road.
Each year the Council issues residents with a roll of 52 purple
sacks for disposing of their waste, enough for one per week. Refuse
will only be collected if put out in these Council branded purple
sacks. By reducing the number of sacks issued, the Council is
encouraging residents to recycle more and throw away less.
Please ensure that:
The Council will not collect any refuse put out in black
Purple sacks are delivered to all households in the Borough on
an annual basis.
If you do not receive your allocation of refuse sacks by the end
of March, please contact the Council's Helpline on 01992
A letter is delivered alongside the purple sacks each
year together with a calendar containing collection
dates. If you did not receive a letter, or need to check your
collection dates, you can do so online.
In the event of residents requiring more than the allocated 52
sacks, additional sacks can be purchased from the Council’s one
stop shops or from the Council Offices.
The Council understands that it may be difficult for some
households to reduce their waste to one sack per week. Therefore,
households who meet the following criteria may be considered for an
additional roll of purple sacks, the equivalent to an extra sack
If your household meets any of the above criteria please contact
the Helpline on 01992 785577 or e-mail WasteManagement@broxbourne.gov.uk.
