Christmas binChanges to waste collection over Christmas

Christmas is fast approaching, and there is so much to do and remember.

We know bins may not be at the front of your mind – but please take 5 minutes to check when your bins will be collected over the festive period.

With 3 bank holidays in the space of a week the waste team –  face quite a challenge to make sure everyone receives a fair service.

To make it as fair as possible,  we have had to make some changes, and you may find that your bin isn’t emptied when you expect it to be.

The main changes

  • We will not be running our normal waste collection service on the following days: Thursday 24 December, Monday 28 December, Tuesday 29 December, Wednesday 30 December, and Thursday 31 December.
  • If you would normally receive a collection on Christmas Eve (Thursday 24 December) you will have a special collection on Tuesday 29 December instead.
