Wiltshire waste and recycling

Wiltshire Council have recently announced changes to their recycling services, meaning residents can now recycle even more.

From 30 July, those living in Wiltshire will be able to recycling plastic pots, tubs and trays, drink and food cartons within their blue bins, in addition to the usual plastic bottles and cardboard.

Blue-lidded bin

You will be able to recycle the following items in your blue-lidded bin:

  • plastic bottles
  • plastic pots, tubs and trays
  • cardboard
  • food and drink cartons
  • shredded paper

Black plastic and plastic films cannot be recycled.

Black box

You can continue to recycling the following items in your black box:

  • paper
  • glass bottles and jars
  • tins and cans
  • clean foils
  • empty aerosols
  • bagged textiles and clothes

You will keep the same containers for your rubbish and recycling and will still be able to recycling all the same things that you currently can, but will also have the opportunity to recycling a wider range of items.

Wiltshire Council are still able to collect non-recyclable household waste and garden waste for a charge.

Please note, collection days will still remain the same.

For more information, please view the Wiltshire Council website, here.

Wiltshire Council offer collection of large items

If your large items are unsuitable for reuse, Wiltshire Council can collect these from outside of your property for a charge.

There is a reduced charge of £11.50 per item if you receive means tested benefit, including housing benefit, council tax reduction and/or income support.
