Check your bin collection day over the festive period

Waste and recycling

People living in Rutland are being reminded to check if their bin collection day will change over the festive period.

At Christmas and New Year, some bin collection days in Rutland have to be changed as schedules are altered to take account of bank holidays.

Rutland County Council is reminding people to double check their collection days heading towards the end of December and into January, with some collections due to take place a day earlier than normal. These changes also apply to properties on the separate farms and lodges collection round:

"Christmas will be different for all of us this year. Although COVID restrictions mean we’ll be celebrating with fewer people and in smaller groups than normal, we still expect waste and recycling volumes to increase as they do every year. We’ll be working hard throughout Christmas and New Year to collect your bins and process recycling. Christmas is the only time of year when bank holidays have an impact on our normal collection schedule, so please check to see if your collection day has changed at all.”
Councillor Lucy Stephenson, Cabinet Member for Environmental Services

Households in Rutland will get an extra blue bag for additional recycling over the Christmas period. Once full, residents are asked to place this bag next to their grey recycling bin on collection day. Collection crews cannot remove any other side waste.

Bulky waste collections continue to be booked by calling the Council on 01572 722 755. Collections run Monday to Friday but will not be available on 24, 25, 29 and 31 December, or 1 January.

North Luffenham Household Waste and Recycling Centre (HWRC) continues to operate Tuesday to Sunday, closing early at 3.00pm on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve. The site will be closed altogether on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.

Cottesmore HWRC remains closed until further notice due to COVID-19 restrictions.
