Refuse and recycling


Green Skips

The green skip will visit Hadstock from 11.15am to 12.15pm every Sunday from 14 April to 2 December 2012. It will be at Bilberry End on the first Sunday of the month and the village green on subsequent Sundays. This service is provided by Uttlesford District Council but paid for by the Parish Council.

Uttlesford District Council's refuse collection service in Hadstock takes place on a Wednesday (except after a Bank Holiday when it is collected on a Thursday). Uttlesford District Council has special arrangements for collection of bulky waste – click here for more details.

Wheelie bin collection alternates on a fortnightly basis. On week one, the brown topped bin (wet waste) and the green topped bin (recycling) are collected. On week two, the brown topped bin (wet waste) and the black topped bin (non recycling) are collected. For a full calendar of collection dates click here.
