Find up to date information on the RDC website:

Waste collections

Waste collections scheduled for Thursday 1 and Friday 2 March have been cancelled.

Household waste rounds will restart on Monday March 5 – weather permitting. You should put your grey bins out as normal next week – but are asked to keep an eye on updates as the situation could change in response to the weather.

Recycling collections

Recycling collections scheduled for  Thursday 1 and Friday 2 March have been cancelled.
We are unable to return for recycling until your next scheduled collection day. You are advised to take your recycling to your nearest recycling centre, or place any excess out in carrier bags on your next scheduled day – remembering to keep glass separate. 

Garden waste collections

All green waste collections from Tuesday (Feb 27) this week were cancelled and homes will not be revisited until the next scheduled collection day.

Anyone needing extra green waste removed as a result of this delay should collect recyclable bags from the council offices.


Electoral Review or Richmondshire

The independent Local Government Boundary Commission for England is carrying out an
electoral review of Richmondshire District Council.
The review will draw new council ward boundaries across Richmondshire.
The Commission has also announced that the council should have 24 councillors in future:
ten fewer than it currently has.
Now we are asking for evidence about your local area to help us decide a new pattern of
wards for Richmondshire.

Your views will make a difference
Local people know their area best. That’s why we are asking you for evidence on a range of issues:
 Do you have suggestions about where your ward boundaries should be?
Which areas do you identify as your local community?
Where do people in your area go to access local facilities such as
shops and leisure activities?
