A message for Selby District Council regarding the new recycling service….

The new recycling collection scheme in our district starts next week. It means the whole of the district will have refuse bins collected next week – not recycling wheelie bins. Recycling will be collected the following week, from the new blue and brown wheelie bins. Some collection days are also changing.

We’d like your help to make sure residents put out the right bins. Collection information can be found on our website: www.selby.gov.uk/news/refuse-recycling-collections.

Please share this website link with your community contacts, on any websites you have and with any community groups. There are Facebook posts about the service changes on our Facebook page – @selbydc. Please feel free to share these too.

Due to the current coronavirus emergency situation the plans for the old recycling box take back scheme is currently on hold. We’re sorry if this causes an inconvenience but we are prioritising waste and recycling collections at this time.

Some residents may have requested larger or smaller bins. This swap out may take place later in the year now, as we redeploy staff to keep the frontline collection services running.

Thank you for your help and support sharing this important information at this difficult time. If you have any questions please email info@selby.gov.uk.
