When and where should I put my bin out?

You must put your bin out on the street at the edge of your property by 7am on the morning of your collection day.

If you live on a farm or have a private ten foot, you must place your green bin at the collection point we have agreed. This is usually at the nearest point to the public road.

Use our bin collection checker to view collection dates for your property:

Please note: your collections will temporarily change following a bank holiday. Check the bin collection checker to find out when your bins will be collected over these periods.

Download the East Riding waste app to search a database of over 10,000 items to see if it can be recycled in your blue bin.

East Riding of Yorkshire council is introducing a new app that:

  • allows you to get a reminder about your bin collection dates based on your preferences
  • automatically shows any changes to your bin collection dates during holidays or due to bad weather or road closures
  • shows what you can put in each bin.

Get the East Riding App from the Apple App Store (external website)

What can I put in my bins?

To view information relating to your different coloured bins, visit the specific bin colour page:

Why wasn't my bin collected?

The most common reasons for a blue bin not being collected are:

  • you didn’t put it out before 7am on your scheduled collection day
  • it wasn’t accessible to our crew
  • the lid wasn’t fully closed
  • there was a reason why we couldn’t accept your waste and a tag will have been attached to your bin explaining why
  • parked vehicles may have stopped our bin lorry reaching your property
  • it’s before 4.30pm on the day of collection - the bin crew may still come and collect your waste.

If none of the above reasons apply, find out if we can come back and collect it for you.
