Bedford Borough Council Bins

Bedford Borough Council’s refuse collections will take place as normal this Friday 8 May.

The Early May Bank Holiday has been moved to Friday to celebrate the 75th anniversary of VE Day.

Bin collections will be completed as normal, so if your rubbish, recycling or garden waste bin is due for collection on Friday 8 May, place your bin out for collection as normal.

You can check your bin collection day at the Council’s online collection day finder.
