Recycling in Chelmsford
Chelmsford City Council collects paper, cardboard, plastics, cartons, cans, glass, small electrical items, reusable clothing and shoes, and food waste. There’s also a year-round garden waste collection service for all households. Please use these services to recycle as much of your waste as you can. This means more raw materials don’t need to be taken from the earth – we can use what we’ve already got and in doing so, produce less carbon emissions which helps reduce climate change.
We provide plenty of recycling on the go bins throughout the city to help you recycle even when you’re not at home. If you own a business in Chelmsford, you can use the council’s excellent recycling collection service with flexible collection arrangements to suit all business types.
