Your festive waste and recycling collections
You won’t miss a collection over Christmas and into the New Year, but there will be changes to your usual days. Collection crews will be working on a bank holiday and Saturdays over Christmas and into the New Year so you don’t miss a collection. There will be no changes to your collection days before Christmas Day. However, collections will be one day later than usual from Monday 26 December for the next two weeks.  If you receive a garden waste collection, the same changes will apply to this service. Please put your black and clear sacks and your garden waste out at
7 am on your collection day.  If you’re not sure when your waste collection day takes place, visit
