Changes to rubbish and recycling collections this Christmas

This is due to the festive bank holidays and local people are encouraged to check their revised schedule to ensure that their bins are collected as part of the regular service.

Please check your revised date for collections over the Christmas and New Year period.

Rubbish and recycling should be left at the front boundary of the property, not on the pavement, by 7am on the collection day. Refuse and recycling collections will change from Christmas Day, Friday 25 December, and return to normal service Monday, 18 January 2021.

The council is also giving people a helping hand to recycle their Christmas tree after the festive period finishes. You can get rid of your Christmas tree in a quick, easy and environmentally friendly way by leaving it out as part of your kerbside rubbish and recycling collections, or by dropping it off at a local park or reuse and recycle centre.

Full information is available via the council’s website.

Everyone can do their bit to have a green Christmas this year and there are plenty of tips you can follow to help you along the way.
