Our waste and recycling services
We’d like St Albans District to be a shining example of community recycling. Together with our partner Veolia, our aim is to increase recycling rates in the District to more than 60%.
Below, you can find information for residents who live in either houses or flats to tell you about our services, together with Frequently Asked Questions with lots more detailed information.
