Waste and recycling policy

Gedling Borough Council announces new plans to increase recycling rates in Gedling.

Consultation on a new waste and recycling policy that sets out the council’s ambition to increase recycling rates and create a more sustainable way of disposing waste, has been approved by Gedling Borough Council’s cabinet. 

The proposals include ensuring all households have large 240 litre recycling bins as standard and access to additional recycling bins, free of charge, if there’s a proven need. The council will also offer additional glass recycling boxes to households who need them.

The council will also offer a large 240 litre residual waste bin as standard to all households consisting of one to five residents. Further residual waste capacity will be offered to households where there are six or more residents.
