Dover District Council Refuse and Recycling Collections

Dover District Council operates kerbside collection services for household waste, green garden waste and a range of recyclable materials. Separate containers are used for the different sorts of refuse. These include wheelie bins, black boxes and garden waste bags but special colour coded plastics bags may be used where regular containers are inappropriate.

The blue-lidded wheelie bin is for recyclable items including cans, plastics and glass. Collections are fortnightly.
The black box is used for paper and card. Collections are also fortnightly on the same day as the recyclable items.
The black-lidded wheelie bin is for anything that can't be recycled. Collections are fortnightly - on a different day to the recyclable items.
For food waste there's a small kitchen caddy for use indoors and a larger storage container for outside. The council collects food waste every week.
Green garden waste is collected fortnightly - but only from properties that have signed up and paid extra for the service.

All items need to made available by 7am on the morning of collection.

To check the arrangements for your street see the Dover District Council website's waste services.
