Your waste and recycling collection calendar

Download your collection calendar today. In Bristol, we collect your recycling every week and general waste every two weeks. Collections take place as usual on bank holidays except for Boxing Day bank holiday and New Year’s Day.

We create new calendars each winter, so make sure you don’t miss bin day and download your collection calendar today!

A small number of properties in Bristol have their recycling and waste collected on different days, if this is you, you’ll need to download 2 calendars.

Do you have your calendar from last year?

Take a look at the top right-hand corner for the version code (eg. MON/A or THU/W). You can use this code to find your 2024 calendar from the dropdown menu below.

Don’t have your calendar from last year?

You can easily find your 2024 collection calendar even without the code from last year’s calendar.

1. Type your postcode into the council’s collection day finder.

2. Find your ‘Round description’ in the information shown. This will be a day of the week followed by either ‘A’ or ‘B’ (please note the system can be a little slow, so you might need to wait a few seconds for the information to appear).

3. Return to this webpage and scroll down to the section below. Choose the correct calendar for your address and click to download.

Blue recycling bag update

Please note that from the 25th March 2024 you will be unable to exchange 90L Blue Recycling Bags at reuse and recycling centres. This is a temporary measure whilst we await further stock. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause you and thank you for your continued efforts to recycle.

Was your collection missed?

If your bins and boxes were not collected, but they were out on time and sorted correctly, your collection may have been missed. Sometimes the crew will return to a street on the same day, so you need to wait until after 5pm to make a report.

The first step is to check our missed collections list to see which streets we’ll be returning to the next day. We update the list every evening. If your street is on the list it means we know your collection was missed and we will return to make the collection on the day specified on that webpage.

Had a missed collection and your street is not on the list? You can report the missed collection on the Bristol City Council website after 5pm on the day the collection was missed and before 5pm the next working day.
