Information for residents

As a charity, we rely on our members to take part in lots of fundraising activities. One of those, is our Monthly Scouts Paper Collection around Dringhouses in York. We collect waster newspapers from 10am on the 1st Saturday of every month, the paper is then recycled and we receive funds for that from City Of York Council. The support we get every month makes a real difference to the activities that we can provide for our young people, Thank You!

Upcoming collections

  • Saturday 6th July
  • Saturday 3rd August
  • Saturday 7th September
  • Saturday 5th October
  • Saturday 2nd November
  • Saturday 7th December
  • Saturday 4th January


What time will the papers be collected?

Any time from 10am. Usually we get finished around lunch time, but sometimes it does take a little longer.

Should I put my papers in a bag?

We ask that you place your papers in a bag. This stops the papers blowing away and it makes easier for us to pick them up. Please dont tie the bags up, this makes it easier for us to get the paper out. Alternatively, you can tie up your bundles of paper with String.

Where should I leave my papers?

Please stack or place your paper on top of each other at the front edge of your property, making sure they don’t cause a problem or danger to anyone going past.

Do you take cardboard?

No, unfortunately not. We can only take Newspapers, magazines and waste paper.
