Changing collection times for waste & recycling

Collection times for waste and recycling provided by East Herts Council are changing from November 12.


People should continue to put out bins and boxes by 7am on collection day. Collections will take place any time from 7am-5pm.

So if you think your bin has been missed, you shouldn't report it until after 5pm. You can report a missed collection online at or call 01279 655261 the next day. You must report a missed collection within 48 hours if you'd like the crews to return.

For a few homes collections days will also change from November 12. The council will send letters to everyone this applies to, giving plenty of notice.
