Liquid food and drinks cartons

Chelmsford City Council now collect liquid food and drinks cartons such as Tetra Pak as part of their kerbside collection.

An upgrade to the material sorting facilty at the Freighter House depot means that these cartons can be identified and separated from other plastics and therefore
cartons can now be placed into your clear recycling bags for plastics, along with other plastic recyclables.

Manned refuse vehicle visits

The manned refuse vehicle service ceased from April 2010, which means that no more manned refuse vehicle visits are scheduled for Great Baddow.

If you have any questions, please contact the City Council's customer services on 01245 615800. They will be able to answer questions about individual needs and arrange for a bulky item collection if required.
