Changes to waste collections Christmas

Revised dates for collection

There will be changes to your waste and recycling collection dates over Christmas and New Year.

Garden waste collections

During the Christmas period, the garden waste service is suspended for a four-week period from Monday 14 December 2020, resuming on Monday 8 February 2021.

The resources for the garden waste collections will be utilised to assist both recycling and domestic collections during this time.

Cardboard collections

The crews will collect extra cardboard in clear bags and leave it for a dedicated cardboard collection vehicle. The bags have been labelled to show the reason for the bags being left in the street. This will reduce the amount of resident enquiries.
