Bin collections

Changes to bin collections over Christmas

There will only be changes to Friday bin collections over the Christmas period.

As usual, there will be no bin collections on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.

Bins due to be emptied on Friday 25 December will instead be collected earlier – on Saturday 19 December (except for food and garden containers).

Bins due for collection on Friday 1 January (including food and garden containers) will be collected a day later on Saturday 2 January.

Leaflets will be delivered to households in the areas affected and we’ll also be sending out reminders via our social media channels.

If your collection day doesn’t fall on any of the above dates then put your bins out as usual.
