Three Rivers and Hertsmere bin collections

According to the councils’ timetables, collections will not take place on Monday, May 8 but rather the next day.

In the Three Rivers the refuse (green bin), recycling bin (black bin with green lid) and the food waster (silver pod) will be collected from May 9 to May 13.

In Hertsmere, from May 9 to May 14 recycling waste will be collected in the green and brown bin.
