Community Waste Collection days

Community Waste Collection days

Our Community Waste Collection days support Trafford Council's 'Let's tidy Trafford together' project.

As part of the initiative, we're providing the opportunity to get rid of all your unwanted and bulky items for free.

To find out when we're in your area, view our schedule below or call 0300 777 7777.


What is Community Waste Collection day?

Over the next few months, we'll be collecting your waste via a caged waste van every week in every part of Trafford, including:

We aim to help reduce fly-tipping, side waste, and contaminated bins, which currently affect the cleanliness and tidiness of our communities.

Over the next few months, bring your bulky and unwanted items to the designated caged waste van, and we'll dispose of them free of charge.


Do I have to pay for this service?

No, this service is free of charge.


When will you be visiting my area?

Our designated caged waste vans will be in your area from 9:30am to 12pm.

However, if the caged vans are filled quicker than expected, we may have to finish the event earlier. To avoid disappointment, please go to the drop off point at an earlier time.

Please don't be alarmed if there isn't a location near to you on the current schedule. Trafford has a large geographical area to cover, and we'll be changing the drop off locations every quarter to give all residents an opportunity to use the free service.

Whilst we'll make every effort to ensure the dates/times are fixed on rare occasions, these may be subject to change due to unforeseen circumstances. In such cases, every effort will be made to update customers in the affected area at the earliest opportunity.
