Your views – Refuse and recycling changes in Croydon

The system for refuse and recycling collection in Croydon is changing in September…

We held a meeting on the subject.  Find the notes and handouts here.

Some of the arrangements have already changed since. e.g. the weekly schedule for bin delivery was advertised part way through the roll-out, and some of what was promised appears not to have taken place, e.g. the surveys of each road so that the right refuse and recycling resources could be delivered to meet the space constraints and access to properties.

What is your experience so far?

Feel free to leave a comment or email photos and comments to and we’ll add it to this post.
