Black refuse bins are collected fortnightly.

We collect household waste on behalf of Peterborough City Council. The Council is committed to helping residents to reduce, reuse and recycle as much waste as possible and we fully support this mission

Black general waste bins should only be used for household rubbish that cannot be reused, recycled or composted – see below for a list of acceptable and unacceptable items. Any bins containing unacceptable items will not be emptied.
