You can’t take commercial waste to Barrowell Green Recycling Centre. If you don't get rid of your commercial waste properly, for example, leaving it out in an open area, you can be prosecuted and fined up to £50,000.

Time-banded collections

We are trialling a system of time-banded collections in the town centre area. Time-bands don't apply if your rubbish is stored and collected directly from the property.

You will only be able to place your rubbish and recycling on these roads and pavements at specific times for collection.

You can place rubbish out for collection between 6am – 7am and 5:30pm – 6:30pm every day. Collections will take place within the hour after leaving your rubbish out.

Time-banded collections in EN1 are located on:

  • Burleigh Way
  • Cecil Road
  • Church Street
  • Genotin Road
  • Genotin Terrace
  • Hatton Walk
  • Little Park Gardens
  • London Road
  • Southbury Road (4-12 Southbury Road)
  • St Onge Parade
  • Sarnesfield Road
  • Silver Street
  • The Town

If you miss the time-band to put out your bins, you must wait until the next collection.

You can receive a £110 Fixed Penalty Notice (FPN) if you do not follow the time-banded collection restrictions. If you continue to put rubbish out incorrectly, we may issue a second £110 FPN and even prosecute.

For more information on your waste collection, refer to our Waste Receptacle Regulations (PDF).
