Refuse and Recycling


The Borough Council runs a weekly recycling scheme which includes: mixed paper and card, food tins/drink cans, plastic bottles and aerosols (boxes containing carrier bags may not be collected.) These materials can be placed mixed together in black boxes which are available free from the Borough Council. The boxes should be placed out with your blue bags for collection in the same twin bodied vehicle. Glass and textiles should be taken to your nearest recycling station.


As from 1st April 2012 there is a new system for garden waste. A brown wheelie bin can be provided from the Borough Council, or, brown sacks can be purchased from Council Offices or libraries and can be left out on a fortnightly basis with your rubbish. More details have been provided to each household within the borough directly from Wokingham Borough Council (Tel; 01189746000).


‘Mucky Puppy’ Sacks

‘Mucky Puppy’ Sacks for use by responsible dog owners are available free of charge from the Town Council Offices, for residents of Earley. Dog Bags can be placed in any bins in the Wokingham Borough, as separate dog bins have now been removed. Earley Town Council maintains dog bins within its own Parks and Open Spaces.
