Coronavirus: latest update on bin collections

There are changes to our waste and recycling services at this time and it is more important than ever for customers to dispose of your household waste correctly.

Coronavirus has impacted on Oldham Council’s waste and recycling services. They’re carrying out as many collections as possible and prioritising general rubbish and food collections. Please visit the Oldham Council website for full details and advice.

If you are a customer in our flats, we will be emptying the communal bins and carrying out checks in our neighbourhoods whilst maintaining social distancing to make sure there are no risks to health and safety. Please make every effort not to overfill or block rubbish chutes.

About bins and refuse collections

Oldham Council provide a replacement bin service for Oldham residents, this includes existing FCHO customers, if you need a new bin or want to find out more visit Oldham Council's website. Please note there is a charge for grey bins, but recycling bins are free.

If you have signed your tenancy with FCHO in the last 28 days and you do not have a grey bin, you can order one from us free of charge by Getting in Touch.

Lots of useful information on how you can contribute to recycling is available on the Oldham Council website together with details about when your bins are collected.
