Craven District Council

Red sticker on your recycling bin? That’s because your waste was contaminated. Please do not call Customer Services to report this as a missed collection. More information here:

Apologies for any missed bin collections this week (Monday April 15th - Friday April 19th). Please do not report these as a missed collection - just place any additional waste in bags which will be collected along with the wheelie bin on your next scheduled collection date.

Text message alerts

We are running a pilot scheme to send text message alerts to residents about missed bins collections.

For example, we'd send you a message if we can't collect your bin due to bad weather or mechanical issues.

If you'd be interested in taking part in the text message alert scheme, please provide your mobile number.
