Information about household bin collection in Bradford

Bradford Council provides bins and collection services to residents in the district. Every household has one general waste bin and one recycling bin (although you can apply for extra recycling bins). These are collected on the same day but on alternate weeks, your general waste bin is emptied one week, and your recycling bin the next.

General and recycling bins and their emptying are provided for free to residents in the Bradford district. Some households also receive a garden waste bin but there is a charge for this to be collected, which happens every four weeks. You can check if you’re eligible and see your bin collection dates in Bradford on the Bradford Council website.

The types of waste you can put in each household waste bin in Bradford include: 

  • Green bin collection in Bradford – for general household waste and non-recyclable rubbish, such as food scraps, non-recyclable packaging (polystyrene trays, plastic carrier bags), and greeting cards with glitter.
  • Grey bin collection in Bradford – for domestic recycling such as junk mail, newspapers, envelopes, drinks cans, aerosols, plastic bottles, and cardboard.
  • Brown bin collection in Bradford – for garden waste such as grass clippings, hedge trimmings, garden plants, leaves, twigs, and small branches.

Households in Bradford use a 240 litre bin for general waste and recycling. If you live in a hard-to-reach location then your domestic bins may be collected by a transit van rather than a bin lorry, but it will still be every alternate week. Extra waste left next to the bin will not be removed. You can apply for an additional recycling bin or take waste to your nearest HWRC.
