Brown bin composting FAQs

Changes to bin collections

All residents should have received a notice about changes to bin collections. We had two black bin collections in a row (November 7th and 14th 2019). The system has now resumed with blue bags collected on November 21st, black on November 28th and thereafter fortnightly alternately. If you have a brown bin for garden waste, this will now be collected on the same day as the blue bin (rather than with the black bin as previously).

You can request more blue bags, get a bigger bin or order a brown bin on the West Suffolk Council website at
