Waste service policy

Wiltshire Council waste collection service policy.

Wiltshire Council (hereafter referred to as we) will collect household waste and  recyclable materials  on alternate fortnights in accordance with a published schedule where possible except in circumstances beyond our control. If this occurs, then collections will be re-scheduled. Collections are currently fortnightly.

Householders can opt to  pay for garden waste collections. If you have subscribed and your garden bin displays a valid sticker, we will collect in accordance with a published schedule where possible except in circumstances beyond our control. If this occurs, then collections will be re-scheduled.

Householders can arrange a  chargeable collection of large items  such as furniture or white goods.
If your large goods are unsuitable for reuse, we can collect these from outside of your property for a charge.  We are unable to enter your property to collect large items. Householders can request this service by calling us on 0300 456 0102.

Upon request, we will provide a separate collection of Clinical Waste from householders who self-administer medication or treatment at home. (e.g. discharged sharps from injection of insulin for the control of diabetes or waste from home kidney dialysis treatment.) Where additional household waste is generated because of the householder's or a member of the household's illness or disability, which may include Offensive healthcare waste which may be landfilled, additional household waste capacity may be provided  without charge at the discretion of the council.
