COVID 19 and waste disposal
If you need information about how to treat waste that is contaminated or suspected to be contaminated with Coronavirus, temporary closures of all Suffolk’s Recycling Centres, as well as any updates on your waste and recycling collections, just visit www.suffolkrecycling.org.uk. Follow the links to where you live for the latest news.
Garden waste collections have been suspended across Suffolk so that district and borough councils can concentrate on maintaining essential waste and recycling collections. We would urge the public to keep hold of their garden waste, along with large or electrical items, rather than using the general waste bin, until service resumes.
Many members of the public are sending in positive messages of support, both on the ground and via social media, expressing their support for our collection crews who are out there on the front line providing key services.
We would also like to extend this appreciation to those behind the scenes, working hard to sort recycling at the materials recycling facility and keeping Suffolk’s energy-from-waste facility going, using our non-recyclable rubbish to generate electricity.
Thank you - you are all heroes!
