Please note that the dates for the rural bulky waste collection during 2018 will be as follows:
Saturday 7th April - 3.00pm to 5.00pm - Close Road until 4.00pm then The Bury
Sunday 8th April - 1.00pm to 3.00pm - West End until 2.00pm then Weavers Lane
There will only be one collection weekend in 2018. The second collection which usually took place in the early autumn was discontinued in 2012 because of Borough Council budget cutbacks
Please do not take acids, asbestos, batteries, fluorescent lamps, gas cylinders, oil, creosote, toner cartridges, tyres, or fridges & freezers to the collection lorries. For guidance on how to correctly dispose of these items please contact the Environment Agency on 03708 506 506. The "Tidy Tip" in Barkers Lane will accept oil, tyres, and batteries (but not commercial waste) - contact bedford 718013. For disposal of fridges and freezers please call the Borough Council Environmental Services Helpline on 01234 718060.
Please do not leave waste at the collection sites if the lorries are not present as that will be regarded as fly tipping and could attract a substantial fine
