Christmas bins and recycling

Recycling icons

Bin collection days will change in Slough over the Christmas and New Year period. Bins will be emptied between one and four days later than normal between 26 December and 14 January due to bank holidays.

Excess rubbish and items that won’t fit in bins should be taken to Chalvey Household Waste and Recycling Centre, which will be open from 9am-5pm every day except for Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.

Residents are reminded to recycle as much as they can over the holidays – Christmas cards, wrapping paper, cardboard packaging and boxes, glass bottles and jars, plastic bottles, food and drink cans should all go in the red recycling bins.

If you’ve got a real Christmas tree this year and you can’t compost it (the most environmentally conscious way to dispose of it) or take it to the household waste and recycling centre. There will also be a real tree collection service between 9 and 20 January, with trees to be outside by 6am.

Please contact the council’s waste contractor Amey on 0800 634 6301 with any queries or visit the council's website.
