Coronavirus: latest update on bin collections

From Monday April 27, Oldham Council will empty either your grey, blue or brown bin on your usual collection day – just as they did before the coronavirus forced them to temporarily change things.

At this stage, you can also put your green bin or food caddy out on your brown bin collection day.

This is to make sure that the council still collects your garden waste over the summer.

Reverting back to the usual three weekly collection will help cut waste, which is important for the environment and helps to reduce costs.

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.
