Side waste cardboard collection from home

cardboard collection

If your recycling bin is full you can put additional recycling next to your recycling collection provided it is presented in an appropriate manner.  Cardboard should be broken down and bundled next to your recycling collection. Other items that would usually be put in recycling bins can also be placed in a plastic carrier bags for side waste collection. However, black sacks won’t be taken, only small carrier bags.

Fly Tipping at Carrington Recreation Ground

Recently I wrote about Textile collections via our weekly refuse collection, however another useful service I do not often see used in the Parish is side waste collection. During the run up to Christmas we are more likely to be collecting cardboard packaging & other recyclable waste as we give and receives gifts for our nearest dearest, and we all wish to recycle as much as we can.  Our 3 recycling centres in Ash Parish continue to be very popular, including our cardboard recycling and where fly tipping is an issue.

If you often have too much recycling you can request a second recycling bin for you waste collection, there is no charge for this! You can do this by the GBC Customer Services Centre at customerservices@guildford.gov.uk or call them on 01483 505050.
