Reading bin collections return to normal


Reading residents bin collections returned to normal on Monday 14 January. The council are recommending resident’s re-cycle as much as possible.

Christmas cards and wrapping paper – put in your red bin or box (but no foil wrapping paper please). You can also take your cards along to one of the high street stores which have collection boxes. Proceeds from the scheme are donated to the Woodland Trust to help them plant new trees.

Bottles – take your empty bottles and jars to one of the numerous bottle banks across Reading. There are now special banks for Tetrapak cartons too.

Food Waste – If you find you’ve overdone the festive food shopping check out the Love Food Hate Waste website for great recipes for your leftovers.

Electrical Items – If you’ve got any small electrical items you no longer want we will be running a ‘Don’t Bin it, Bring it’ campaign in the new year where residents can dispose of unwanted small electrical items at local road shows around Reading. Alternatively, they can be taken to the Household Waste Recycling Centre (HWRC) at Smallmead.

Textiles – If you’re having a clear out over the Christmas holiday, take your old clothes, bedding and curtains to a nearby textile bank, charity shop or the Household Waste Recycling Centre (HWRC) at Smallmead.
