Change of waste collection days in the Corby area

Bins, recycling and street cleansing

28 September 2022

The bin collection schedules for all properties in the Corby area (previously covered by Corby Borough Council) will be changing from the week beginning Monday 17 October.

North Northamptonshire Council will be tagging all bins, with either a green or pink tag, in the affected area beforehand to let residents know and to notify them of their new collection days/schedule for refuse, recycling, garden bins and food waste. 

This change will only impact those in the Corby area, with some residents in the area having just a collection day change whilst others will also have a schedule change too.

The changes are necessary to accommodate new housing developments, to improve the efficiency of the collection service and to allow for the ongoing growth in property numbers into the future. 

Residents are reminded to place your bins out for collection by 6:30am on collection day and remove them from the street by 7pm on collection day.

We know that this might be slightly disruptive for people initially, but, this reorganisation is necessary for future proofing the area and means we can accommodate planned household growth in the area, whilst ensuring the reliability and value for money of the service.

I would encourage residents to keep an eye out for a green or pink tag on their bin and check the details carefully to ensure they know which days their bins will be collected.

If you are unsure of your bin collection day or need more information, you can check on the bin collection web page. This will be updated to reflect the new collection days.
