Waste and recycling collections over the Christmas holidays

Collection crews will be out and about over the festive season and residents will have their waste collected as usual unless their collection is due on Christmas Day, Boxing Day or New Year’s Day.

Bin tags detailing the collections are being attached to bins so residents know what waste is collected and when.

Refuse and kerbside box collections due on Monday 25 December will be brought forward to Saturday 23 December.

Collections due on Boxing Day (Tuesday 26 December) will take place on Saturday 30 December and collections due on New Year’s Day (Monday 1 January) will take place on Saturday 6 January.

Residents with Boxing Day and New Year’s Day refuse collections will be provided with an additional red refuse sack for their additional waste as they will be go four or five additional days between collections.

The red sacks are 90 litres in capacity which is almost half the capacity of a standard wheelie bin.

Medical waste collections  due on Monday 25 December will take place on Saturday 23 December and those due on Monday 1 January will take place on Saturday 30 December.

In order to focus attention on collecting wrapping paper, present packaging, glass and tins, foil and all household plastics (apart from thin film), the Council will once again be suspending green waste collections from Monday  18  December,  with collections restarting the week beginning Monday 15 January.

All recycling and refuse should be left at the boundary of your property by 7am on collection day.  Most extra waste at this time of year can be recycled.

Additional recycling, apart from glass, that does not fit into the boxes provided can be left out for collection in separate plastic bags.  All cardboard boxes must be flattened and be no more than 1 metre square. Any extra glass should be left in the plastic box to protect against breakages. When green waste collections start again (week commencing 15 January) real Christmas trees (less than 6ft tall with a trunk of less than 4 inches thick) can also be left out for collection on your scheduled green waste collection day. Please remove decorations.
