Christmas and New Year 2023 Bin Collection Changes

Waste Bins

Christmas and New Year Bin Collection Changes

Guildford Borough Council (GBC) has confirmed the bin collection days will change over the Christmas and New Year periods.

No garden waste collection

GBC does not make garden waste collections during the Christmas period. There will be no garden waste collections for two weeks between Monday 25 December and Saturday 6 January.

Excess Cardboard waste

With the increase in online delivery, households have more cardboard than ever to dispose of. If your recycling bin is full you can put additional recycling next to your recycling collection provided it is presented in an appropriate manner.  The 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 see-through small carrier bags.
