From the end of October Swindon Borough Council is changing the days of waste and recycling collections. Starting from 31st October waste and recycling collections (wheelie bins and orange or black boxes) will be be split across two days.

  • Properties to the north of East Wichel Way (the side closest to the school) will have collections on alternate Mondays.
  • Properties to the south of East Wichel Way (the side closest to the canal) will have collections on alternate Tuesdays.

There is a postcode search on the council’s website that you can use to check which days your waste collections will be. For those that subscribe to garden waste collections, garden waste collections will be on alternate Mondays throughout the whole of East Wichel.

Waste and recycling should be put out by 6.30 am on your collection day.
