Blue Box for Paper and Card Collection
Your paper and card should be recycled using your blue paper and card recycling box. You no longer need to use the pink sack for paper and card. Please flatten large boxes and place these next to the blue box.
Residents who live in communal blocks of flats will have their own arrangements.
If you need a replacement box use our online form on MySouthend. To do this please register for MySouthend where you can manage and keep track of your reports and requests online and have control to get the information you need, without having to call of visit us. When you register with MySouthend you will receive updates on the status of your request. Register or sign in to your MySouthend account.
Please put out your box at the edge of your property by 7am on your collection day. Recycling and waste should not be put out earlier than the evening before collection, and should not be placed on the public footpath, grass verge or road or you may be liable to a Fixed Penalty Notice.
To find out when your collection day is please see our collection days page.
If you have more paper and card than will fit in your blue box (for example after a birthday or special occasion) you can use a cardboard box or paper bags alongside your blue box for the additional recycling. If you produce more than one blue box-worth on a weekly basis then you can request additional boxes using our online form on MySouthend. To do this please register or sign in to your MySouthend account.
Please contact us if you require an assisted collection.
