Thank you for your Members Request as detailed below. Brentwood Borough Council does not operate Alternate Weekly Collections (i.e. refuse one week, recycling the next). Therefore, questions 2 – 8 that are not applicable. We currently collect both refuse, food waste and recycling weekly and collect garden waste and glass fortnightly.
