Information about Harrogate household bin collection

Domestic waste is collected from all households in Harrogate by the local council. Most households have a 240 litre black wheelie bin for general waste and two black boxes and two blue bags for domestic recycling. Households unsuitable for a wheelie bin will have two rubbish bags collected in their place. Residual and recycling collections happen on alternate weeks.

Use the black bin for general/residual waste, such as food scraps, packaging, and other non-recyclable waste. Your domestic recycling in Harrogate should be separated and placed in the appropriate bag or box:

  • Black recycling boxes – glass bottles and jars (any colour), plastic bottles, yoghurt pots, margarine tubs, light-coloured trays, drinks and food cans, tin foil and foil trays, cardboard food and drinks cartons, and aerosols.
  • Blue bags – newspapers and magazines, junk mail, shredded paper, envelopes, wrapping paper, clean card (cereal boxes, egg boxes, food packaging), and corrugated cardboard.

Harrogate garden bin collection is available, but it’s a subscription service. A garden waste licence in Harrogate costs £43.50 and includes 19 fortnightly collections between mid-March and late November. This includes the removal of one 240 litre wheelie bin or the equivalent number of reusable bags full of green waste.

Harrogate bin collection FAQs

  • How do I report a missed bin collection in Harrogate?

    Report a missed bin collection in Harrogate online using the council’s online form. To ensure your bin collections aren’t missed you must check you’ve got the right day for your area. Bins should be put out before 7am on the day of collection containing the correct waste and with a lid that closes.

  • What is brown bin collection in Harrogate for?

    Wheelie bins with a brown lid in Harrogate are used for garden waste. For households where a wheelie bin isn’t suitable, they may use the equivalent number of waste bags.

  • What is the best glass bin in Harrogate?

    Households can put clean and dry glass bottles and jars of any colour in their black recycling boxes supplied by the council. Businesses must arrange commercial waste collection of any glass waste. These can only be stored in 240 litre wheelie bins, due to the weight of the glass.
