Collection calendars

You will no longer be receiving a Waste Collection Calendar as a bin hanger. You can check which bin is being collected via our postcode checker and download your own personalised Waste Collection Calendar as a PDF to keep on your digital device, or print off a copy.

A generic 2019-20 Waste Collection Calendar was also printed in your Dacorum Digest magazine (winter 2019 issue), which was delivered to households in November and can be read online.
