The arrangements for Christmas bin services have just been announced.
Black & Brown Bins
There will be no collection on Christmas Day. Bins due to be collected on Christmas Day will instead be collected on Saturday 27th December.
There will also be no collection on New Year’s Day. Bins due to be collected on New Year’s Day will instead by collected on Saturday 3rd January. So, if you have a Thursday collection, remember it’s normal tomorrow, and then moving to Saturday for the next two weeks.
At this time of year, many of us have more recyclable materials than usual. All that wrapping paper and packaging from toys should be recycled too! Because of this, we’ve arranged to allow you to put additional recyclable materials tidily beside your Green Bin once it’s full, and those will be collected too. this service will last until 31st January to ensure you’ve plenty of time to clean up after the festivities!
Unmanned bottle banks will remain open over Christmas, and will be emptied on a regular basis. Please remember not to leave rubbish lying around after you’ve put your bottles safely in the bin. Bring the plastic bags or cardboard boxes back home for your Green Bin.
