Christmas bin collections and recycling reminder


Christmas bin collections and recycling reminder

Published 14 December 2020

Households across the district have been sent new 2021 bin calendars, which also include information about Christmas bin collections.

Local households that have their bins emptied on a Friday will have some changes to their waste collections over the festive period.

As set out in the calendars, bins will not be emptied on Christmas Day or New Year’s Day, both of which fall on a Friday.

Local homes that would have been due a blue bin collection on Christmas Day will have them collected on either Wednesday 23 or Thursday 24 December.

Households that would have had their black bins emptied on Christmas Day will have their replacement collections on either Monday 28 or Tuesday 29 December.

All replacement collections for blue and black bins that would have been emptied on New Year’s Day will be on Saturday 2 January.

The garden waste service will be paused from mid-December to the end of January. Residents should check their calendars for their first brown bin collection date in 2021.
