Changes to waste collection days to start next week

Residents are being asked to ensure they have read important information from Swindon Borough Council regarding potential changes to the day their household waste, recycling and garden waste is collected.

From next Monday (31 October), new waste collection routes will come into force which will affect more than half of Swindon’s 97,000 households.
Waste and recycling collections will remain fortnightly and blue bag collections will continue to operate weekly.

The Council has written to every household in the borough to outline whether they will be affected by the changes. Residents who have not seen their letter can check if they are affected by the changes by visiting a postcode checker on the Council’s website –

Further information on the changes is available on Swindon News
