The Lyneham community is covered by two rounds.
One will be a Wednesday (this takes in Dixon Road and Greenway
Drive) and the other will be Thursday (taking in Argosy Road
and Belfast Mead). Members of the public are asked to help
the refuse teams during collection days, firstly by ensuring
the bins are placed outside their properties by 7am and also
ensuring that their vehicles are not parked in such a way
to stop the refuse vehicles being able to get through. The
collection service maybe disrupted at Christmas
and Easter. Residents are notified of special collection
arrangements for holidays shortly before the holiday period,
details will be published in the local press and on this website. See what your normal collection day is here
Non 'Wheelie Bin' Properties
Homes not suitable for wheeled bins will receive letters informing
them that they will be provided with black sacks carrying
the council's logo, and will be allowed to put out up to three
black sacks per week for collection. Properties that have
been designated as not suitable for "wheelie bins"
access are asked to ensure all waste bags are conveniently
positioned by the roadside. Do not put the environmentally
hazardous substances in the wheelie bin or waste plastic bags,
please telephone the Cleansing & Amenities Team for advice.

It is council policy to only collect rubbish which is contained
within the bin. Excess rubbish will not be collected. This
includes bags placed at the side of the bin and bags placed
on top of the bin. Please ensure that your bin lid is closed.
Bags stopping the lid from closing will be removed and left
beside the bin after collection.
Exceptions may apply in the case of missed collections due
to public holidays etc. However, the Council will not collect
extra refuse that is solely garden waste at any time.
Recycling your plastic bottles and
You can now recycle all plastic bottles and flattened cardboard
at your local mini recycling site.
What do I do with plastic bottles?
When you bring plastic bottles, please remember to wash,
squash and put the lids back on. This means we can
fit more plastic in to the bins and the lorries,reducing
the number of trips that we need to make to transport them.
What do I do with cardboard?
It must be clean and flattened, to help save space in the
bins. All plastic and polystyrene packaging that come with
the cardboard must be removed to avoid contamination. Tetra-Pak
and other metallic coated cardboards, such as fruit juice
cartons, can not be recycled at these mini recycling sites.
Where can I take them to?
Your nearest drop off points are at Sainsbury Car parks at
both Calne and Wootton Bassett. Further afield you can take
the plastic and cardboard to Chippenham at either Sainsbury's
or Morrison's car park.
