Service Update:

Due to roadworks on the B4197, we have been unable to collect refuse sacks from properties in Hillside, Martley on Tuesday 4 August. We will return ASAP once we have ascertained accessibility. These roadworks are scheduled to be in place for 3 weeks so we will also review options for the upcoming collections. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused.

 

Due to roadworks we have still been unable to access bins at 22 - 42 Lawnspool Drive, Kempsey. We will return to collect black bins from these properties on Tuesday, 11 August. We will collect green bins from these properties as usual on Wednesday, 12 August.

Please note:

1 - Households who use a wheelie bin or share the use of a communal bin are not entitled to free-issue refuse or recycling sacks.

2 - For those households entitled to sacks our annual delivery of sacks takes place in May/June.

3 - We no longer empty non-MHDC wheelie bins.

With the ever-changing situation relating to Covid-19, there is a potential that refuse and recycling collections will be affected.

We will update this page accordingly and use our social media accounts. You can also sign up to our e-recycling newsletter.

Disposal of waste for people/households with symptoms of coronavirus

Please put used tissues and disposable cleaning cloths in rubbish bags. Then put the bag into a second bag and tie it securely. Store it for three days before putting it in your black bin.

If you are on a sack collection follow the same process and store bags separately from bags of standard household waste for three days. They can then be put out for collection together on your usual collection day.

You can dispose of other household waste as normal.

Household Recycling Centres 

Worcestershire County Council's Household Recycling Centres are open but with restrictions in place and social distancing measures. Additional restrictions are in place at Malvern HRC. Only 30 cars will be allowed to queue on site. Once this figure is reached you will be turned away until there is space. Please only visit if it is essential to do so and you cannot dispose of your waste safely and legally another way. Read more about the restrictions in place at Household Recycling Centres.
