All household recycling centres are currently closed due to Coronavirus.

Following the announcement by the Prime Minister on the evening of Monday 23 March that everyone should stay at home to save lives, we have
closed all household waste recycling centres with immediate effect.
Recycling centres will not open from Tuesday 24 March onwards, for an indefinite period.
Visiting recycling centres is not included in the reasons for leaving home.
All households should make full use of their kerbside waste collection service, which your local council is making every effort to keep operational for your recycling, green and food waste and general waste.

Covid-19: Waste and Recycling Services

If you have suspected or confirmed Coronavirus and are self-isolating, you need to double bag your used tissues and disposable cleaning cloths and wait 72 hours before putting it out for collection. For more information visit our page here.

Over 3,000 Cheltenham residents give their view on new waste collection proposals


Cabinet to agree preferred option for waste and recycling collections

On Tuesday 6 December, cabinet members will be asked to approve the proposed option for waste and recycling collections.

In a recent public consultation where more than 3,000 residents shared their views, 'option a - no change to the way your waste and recycling is collected' received the most amount of votes.

This option will see an increase in the amount of items which can be collected from the kerbside. There will be no change to the frequency of collections and the recycling boxes will stay the same.  As part of the improvements, new vehicles will be purchased and residents may be informed of a change to their collection day, when the service launches late in 2017.

If the recommendation is approved by cabinet members, it will then go to full council on 15 December for formal approval of the budget required.

Councillor Chris Coleman, cabinet member for clean and green environment said:  ''I am pleased that we are now in a position to move forward with the proposed option for our waste and recycling services.  To have received so many responses from the public is overwhelming and again I'd like to thank residents for their input.''
