Please note: Following a temporary suspension, our brown bin collection service will resume week beginning 11th May 2020. Find out more.
Ipswich Borough Council is offering a second brown bin to the residents of Ipswich.
Due to public demand Ipswich Borough Council is improving its brown bin collection service. Ipswich residents have the opportunity to apply for a second brown bin to help them recycle more of their garden waste.
For £51.00 per year the Borough Council will provide another 240 litre brown bin (standard household size), which will be collected on the same day as your current brown bin. Even though the scheme is open to all the residents of Ipswich, only a limited number of properties can be accepted on to the scheme due to the capacity of the vehicles.
Don't waste your time taking all your extra garden waste to the Household Waste Recycling Centre, invest in a second brown bin instead. Just think you'll be helping the planet by reducing your carbon footprint as well.
