Re: Kerbside garden waste suspension

It has been confirmed that the kerbside garden waste suspension will take place be between Monday, 9 December 2019 and Friday, 28 February 2020 inclusive.  The service will resume as normal on Monday, 2 March 2020.

 During this period all other waste collections will take place as normal.


The Parish of Brogborough lies by Junction 13 of M1 which is in Mid Bedfordshire. Many of the properties used to be owned by the brickworks but as the brickworks closed the properties became privately owned or purchased by Housing Authorities. There is a shop and a chinese takeaway restaurant and the community is blessed with a village hall which is run by the Brogborough Social Ammenities Association. There are two lower schools, middle schools and upper schools not too far away from the village.
