We will e-mail you details of rubbish and recycling information. Northampton Borough Council's website has details of collection days and what can be recycled.
The Council have recently implemented a new collection policy. If you live in a Non-Wheelie bin area (i.e. the town centre) you will only be able to put out 2 green sacks of rubbish per week per house. The council will provide you with these sacks. You will only get enough for 2 a week, if you use more you will run out! If you don’t receive your sacks please contact the council.
The idea is to encourage re-cycling. You should be able to recycle most things. If you haven’t got all the boxes please order them here (you can have more than 1 of each)
The council have said that in the meantime you can put recycling in other containers provided it is clearly marked.
To fit more in please squash plastic bottles and cans, rip up pizza boxes etc.
If the council do not pick up any rubbish or recycling that day please report it to them straight away, you only have 24 hours to do this.
If you leave it out other people will dump rubbish on top of it and you may be fined for fly tipping!
If other people leave rubbish outside your house which I see as quite likely please report it to them straight away.
Please don’t build rubbish up in your back garden, you will get rats, mice, etc. moving in.
If you have excess rubbish you can take it to the recycling centres for free - here are a list of Waste and recycling centres in Northampton.
If your rubbish builds up really badly we may have to arrange to sort it for you. This will be charged to us at a minimum £100 per load as commercial waste, which we would have to pass on to you. The contract does allow for rubbish disposal charges.
