Stratford on Avon District Council is pleased to report that recycling collections will start again on Monday 2 August.

The District Council would like to apologise for the temporary suspension of recycling collection service following the devastating fire at the Pure Recycling facility in Ettington. We have been working hard since the fire to reinstate the service.

  • Please present your bin on your normal collection day - in Ilmington the next scheduled collection is on Tuesday 3 August.
  • Please make sure your bin is out for collection at 6am - collections may not take place at your usual time, so make sure your bin is available for collection.
  • If it is not collected, please don’t report as a missed bin, please leave it out and crews will collect it as soon as they can.
  • All the usual recycling material will be collected – please make sure it is washed, cleaned and dry as possible.
  • Extra recycling will be collected and this can be placed beside the bin in cardboard boxes, rigid containers or in, preferably, clear plastic bags.

Crews will be working round the clock to catch-up on collections and extra crews will also be out to help with the rounds. Residents may see different vehicles collecting the recycling, but please be reassured that all the material collected will be recycled.
