RECYCLING BIN ORDERS

Due to an unprecedented number of orders for new recycling bins, we've been working hard to get them all out to customers promptly. We apologise for the delays already experienced but all recycling bins should now have been delivered apart from the smaller 140 litre blue recycling bin which is currently out of stock. If you ordered a 140 litre blue bin, we expect these to be delivered by the week ending 28 August 2015. If you've not received your blue recycling bin by this date, please email us at recycling@rochdale.gov.uk giving your name and adddress or ring us on 0300 303 8884.

RECYCLING FACTS

With your help we can recycle more and reduce our costs to help protect other services.

  • The Rochdale borough recycled around 34% of its waste in 2014.
  • Too much waste that could be recycled is still going in the general waste (dark green) bin.
  • Increasing the amount we recycle by 5% could help us save over £1 million a year. This is money which could be used to help safeguard other essential public services.
  • We need to save over £52 million in the latest round of cuts and with your help we can reduce our disposal costs.
  • It currently costs us £10 every time we empty a general waste (dark green) bin and costs are increasing each year
