End of term blitz on waste

Our Customer Service Centre on Southfield Road is now open for essential enquiries by appointment only. Please be aware that from August 8 it is mandatory for face coverings to be worn on the premises. More information, including how to make an appointment, in this news story.

Students who have stayed in Loughborough throughout the coronavirus pandemic are being encouraged to get behind an end-of-term blitz on waste on Saturday July 4, 2020.

The Council has teamed up with waste management partner Serco and Loughborough University to organise the big clear-up in student areas of the town.

The event which is held annually at the end of the academic year, targets around 2,000 student properties to give people a chance to get rid of things they don’t want to take home.

A list of the streets can be found here.

Household waste and recycling

Recyclable materials can be put in the green wheelie bin and waste in the black wheelie bin for collection. Anything that doesn’t fit in the bin should be clearly labelled. Building waste or fixtures or fittings will not be collected.

Find out what can go in your green recycling bin.

Bulky Waste Collections

Bulky waste items such as large electrical items or furniture can be removed by the Council for a small charge. Bulky waste collections cost £20 for three items and a list of eligible items is available on the Council’s website.

Refuse sites

Most large items can also be taken to one of the local refuse sites. The site at Mountsorrel is currently and Shepshed is due to open on June 25. People will need to book an appointment in advance on the Leicestershire County Council website.

Charity donations

Although a lot of charity shops and donation banks are currently closed, it is worth considering taking household goods, clothing and items you no longer need but are still in a reusable condition home with you. These items can then be donated to charity and help them raise funds at a later date.
