Brown bin collections

Please note: there will be no garden waste collections the weeks commencing 27 December 2021 and 3rd January 2022. 

Real Christmas trees

During January, you can leave your real Christmas tree, with all decorations removed, beside your brown bin on collection day. Please note: Large trees (trees that are over 7ft tall, or have a trunk thicker than 7cm), can only be collected via a collection point. They can also be taken to a Suffolk Recycling Centre.

No brown bin? No problem. You can recycle your tree by taking it to a designated collection point or a Suffolk Recycling Centre. There is no collection point in the village. Your nearest collection point is Blackbourne Car Park, Elmswell, on Wednesday 19th January. 

Refuse & recycling collection days

From 24 January 2022, refuse and recycling collections return to the normal schedule. For Thurston, this will normally be a Friday.
