Which bin should I use?

Every household (which does not have access to communal bins) should have three wheelie bins:

  • Blue-lidded bin  (240 litre) for recycling - collected weekly
  • Green-lidded bin (240 litre) for garden and food - collected fortnightly
  • Black bin (140 litre) for household rubbish that can't be recycled - collected weekly

Remember to always Recycle Right - empty any liquid and rinse out any food or drink residue before putting it in the right bin. Bins that contain the wrong items will not be emptied.

Houses in Watford have also been delivered kitchen caddies and biodegradable liners, please use these to help recycle your food waste, emptying them into the green bin.

Bins must be put out the night before or by 6:00am on your collection day and must be returned to within your property boundary within 24 hours of collection.

To order a replacement or new bin call Veolia on 020 3567 6900 or email enquiries.watford@veolia.co.uk or check your bin collection day.
