Bin collection changes and recycling during the festive period

Published on Tuesday, 17th November 2020

In order to accommodate for bank holidays over the Christmas period, there will be temporary changes to some bin collections this year, affecting those who have bin collections on Tuesday and Friday.

Changes to bin collections:

Normal collection date                              Rescheduled collection date

Tuesday 22nd December 2020                Saturday 19th December 2020

Friday 25th December 2020                     Tuesday 22nd December 2020

Friday 1st January 2021                           Saturday 2nd January 2021

Residents should ensure the correct bin(s) are presented by 7.00am on the day of their collection to avoid potential disappointment.

To make sure that everyone knows when they need to leave their bins out over the holiday period – The council’s refuse crews will be delivering bin hangers with all the information regarding the holiday period collection changes to all residents for two weeks. They will be starting to deliver the hangers on Monday 23rd November.

Cllr Jill Sheppard, Portfolio Holder for Central Services and Refuse said:

“Our aim is to keep disruption to bin collections to a minimum over Christmas, so changes have been made to ensure those affected by bank holidays are not having to wait too long for collections. You can visit the website for full details of the changes and also see our festive season recycling suggestions. We would like to remind residents to please ensure bins are presented by 7am on collection days.”

Green Bin Collection Suspension

Please note that all green bin collections will be suspended for two weeks from Monday 18th January 2021.  The new 2021/22 service will then begin Monday 1st February 2021. Sign up to the 21/22 green bin service by Friday 15th January to avoid missing collections when the new service begins.
