VERGE CUTTING SCHEDULE IN OUR DISTRICT
Braintree District Council works in partnership with Essex County Council to ensure that the rural highway verges across the district are cut annually. The schedule for this autumn can be found here: Autumn 2023 verge cutting schedule – Braintree District Council.
Please note that the cutting schedule is dependent on weather conditions; periods of heavy rainfall mean that our contractor is unable to cut the verges without causing damage. This can put our contractor behind and so the schedule should be used as a guide only.

ESSEX RECYCLING CENTRE BOOKING SYSTEM ANNOUNCED
From Monday 13th March 2023, residents visiting Essex County Council (ECC) recycling centres will need to book in advance.
A booking system will be trialled for all vehicles visiting ECC recycling centres to help manage waiting times, reduce congestion, and improve the customer experience.
The booking process has already been trialled for all vehicles using Rayleigh Recycling Centre, and also for large vehicles using the nine van-friendly sites. Both trials have been effective in smoothing the pattern of demand across operating hours and reducing queues and congestion both in and around the sites. Residents will be able to book their slots in advance from Monday 27th February. Site users visiting by foot do not need to book a slot. Blue Badge holders do not need to book a slot.
For more information and how to book a slot please click here.
