About your blue and brown bin collections, recycling centre locations, projects and campaigns.

Your blue bin is for recycling clean, dry items such as paper, cans, cardboard and rigid plastic food and drink containers.
The brown bin composting scheme is proving a real hit with Ipswich residents and covers nearly 46,000 properties across the town.
Ipswich has many different sites where you can recycle a variety of items. Find out your nearest recycling point for books, cans, cardboard, glass, oil, paper, plastic, textiles and electrical waste.
Find out how you can recycle your household electrical items in Ipswich.
The nearest sites are at Sir Alf Ramsey Way and Foxhall and are run by Suffolk County Council.
Use our bulky garden waste collection service for compostable waste that will not fit in your brown bin.
Ipswich residents have the opportunity to apply for a second brown bin to help them recycle more of their garden waste.
Make sure that your bin is out and ready for collection on the right day and in the right place.
The Suffolk Waste Partnership (SWP) has launched a campaign to encourage people to reduce the amount of food they throw away.
