Green Waste drop-off at OasisBedford Borough Council have opened a green waste drop-off facility at the Oasis Swimming Pool car park off Cardington Road.

This site is for Bedford Borough residents only, and proof of address (such as a utility bill or Council Tax bill) will be required.

Residents will be able to bring their garden waste, without appointment, to the Oasis site and empty any bags or containers of garden waste into large bins. This facility will be open from 9am-5pm, from Monday 11 May for one week initially, then it will be reviewed. Only cars, 4x4s, and small vans up to 1500kg payload will be able to use this service.

The Oasis site is purely for garden waste, no other waste will be accepted. The same types of green waste will be accepted as can currently go in the green lidded bin e.g. grass cutting, plants and weeds, flowers, prunings, hedge clippings, leaves and bark.

The Household Waste and Recyling Centre (HWRC) on Barkers Lane has also reopened on an appointment only basis. You can find out more about the green waste drop-off and the HWRC at
