Christmas changes to bin and recycling collections

There will be some changes to waste and recycling collections over the Christmas and New Year period.

All collections are moving back a day with the exception of the collection due on Monday 25 December which will be brought forward to Saturday 23 December.

The change means residents who are due a collection on a Wednesday will instead have their bins collected on a Thursday, and so on.

Residents are reminded to put their black wheelie bins, black box and blue and green recycling bags out as normal for collections from 6am onwards. Councillor Damian Corfield, cabinet member for highways and environmental services, said:

“Our crews will be working hard over the Christmas period, and by changing collections by just one day hopefully people will be able to accommodate this simple switch.

“Christmas always generates a lot of extra waste, so do make the most of those recycling bags and boxes and recycle what you can.”

Full details can also be found on the ‘bins and recycling’ pages of the council website.
