Rubbish, recycling and dog bins
If you come across potentially hazardous waste – needles being an important example – please ring Swindon Borough Council Customer Services on 01793 445501. It can then be dealt with immediately.
Swindon Borough Council publishes details of all wheelie bin, garden waste and recycling box collections on their website. Just enter your postcode!
They also publish a page listing all of their household waste recycling centres – complete with maps.
The Parish Council provides a total of 16 bins for dog owners to deposit waste from their pets. The following maps show the approximate location of these bins:
Please use these bins to dispose of waste from your pets and help us keep the Parish clean and safe. Dog waste can also be double bagged and put in general waste bins or household waste.
