Household Refuse Collection

All households in Aldeburgh now receive a wheeled bin recycling and refuse collection service run by Suffolk Coastal Services, giving residents alternate fortnightly collections of recyclable materials and household refuse that cannot be recycled.  Every home also has a fortnightly brown bin collection service for their garden and food waste. If you have any questions about your waste and recycling services or if you would like any more information or advice, please contact Suffolk Coastal Services on 01394 444000 or email
