Recycling and waste collection day finder

Household and recycling collections can take place at any time between 7am and 5pm on your collection day.

On collection day please ensure:

  • Right containers - The correct rubbish or recycling is placed in the right containers. We will not collect any excess waste (for example any items that cannot go into your black wheelie bin).
  • Right place - Your rubbish and recycling is left in the correct location for collection, this is at the front edge of your property but not on the pavement and clearly visible. Containers must not be presented on the pavement which may block access for pedestrians.
  • Right time - Your rubbish and recycling is left out for collection by 7am on your collection day

Please remember that recycling from your red, blue, green and food waste containers is collected weekly.

If you live in a flat or a flat above a shop in the borough, we are aware that in some instances the information provided to you in the collection day finder may be inaccurate. We're sorry about this.

Please email recycling@hounslow.gov.uk for further assistance.
