Christmas and New Year

The easiest way to see changes to your collections is to view and download your collection calender - Online Rubbish and Recycling Collection Dates.

  • Monday 24th December - Collections as normal
  • Tuesday 25th - Friday 28th December inclusive - No collections *Tuesdays bins will be collected on Saturday 29th December*
  • Monday 31st December and Tuesday 1st January - No collections

Your collection schedule will pause during the break and then resume afterwards, where it left off. So for example, if we collected your red bin before the break, your black bin will be collected next when the service resumes.  On your first black bin collection day after Christmas and New Year we will collect your black bin and up to three bags of rubbish.
