Your next waste collection
Enter your postcode into the search box below and your next refuse and recycling collection day will be shown
If you have a My Darlington+ account you can be alerted by email when your refuse and recycling is going to be collected, and when your days will change because of bank holidays. Signing up for an account is free and only takes five minutes!
The way we collect refuse and recycling is going to change in October - the first week your household rubbish will be collected and the following week your recycling will be collected. Visit our revised weekly collection page to find out more.
All properties in Darlington have been given a free green plastic recycling bin and blue bag. You can recycle:
- glass in your green box
- paper and card in your blue bag
- everything else in your wheeled bin (this goes to our warehouse where all the recyclable content such as plastic bottles, steel and aluminium cans and cartons are taken out and recycled)
Please put your refuse and recycling out by 7:30am on the morning of collection. Anyone putting out refuse on the wrong day could face a fine.
Refuse and recycling collections days temporarily change for most residents during bank holidays. The full list of dates is available on our bank holiday collection dates page.
