Waste collections over bank holidays

Just had this information from the Council’s waste and recycling team about how collections will be different during the weeks of the 18th April, 25th April and 2nd May because of the bank holidays.

Recycling and rubbish collections over upcoming Bank Holidays period

Recycling and rubbish collections will take place one day later than usual over the Easter and early May Bank Holiday period, as in previous years.

From Good Friday 22 April until Saturday 8 May all recycling and rubbish will be collected the day after your usual collection day.

This also means that if your usual collection day is Thursday, you will receive a collection on the Royal Wedding Bank Holiday Friday. If your usual collection day is Friday, you will receive a collection on Saturday for three consecutive weeks.

Please remember to put your recycling and rubbish out by 7am on the morning of your collection day. All collections will return to your normal day from Monday 9 May.
