Date Published: 14 December 2017
Catmose Winter 2017

Rutland County Council’s offices and customer service centre will be closed over the Christmas and New Year period.

A number of services will be unavailable during the closure, which takes effect from Monday 25th December 2017 until Tuesday 2nd January 2018.

Critical services, such as Adults and Children’s Social Care, are unaffected and will continue to operate as normal.

The Council will also continue to provide an out of hours contact service, meaning 24/7 support is still available in an emergency by calling: 01858 464 499.  

Emergency out of hours contact details for Rutland’s adult and children’s social services also remain unchanged:

“We’ve always had extremely low numbers of enquiries over the festive period, with people understandably focused on making the most of time spent with friends and family. As a result, we’ve taken the decision to remain closed between Christmas and New Year. Services like bin collections and winter gritting will continue as normal and our social care teams will still be on hand for anyone who needs them. People can also continue to access services online, via the Council’s website. On behalf of everyone at the Council, I would like to wish all of our residents a very merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous 2018.”      
Councillor Oliver Hemsley, Portfolio Holder for Resources

Lots of our services can now be accessed online, from reporting a missed bin collection to applying for your child's school place. See how to Pay, Report and Apply Online.

Changes to Bin Collections

Notably, some bin collections days will change over the Christmas and New Year period. 

Where changes have had to be made, collections have been moved back, meaning you simply need to leave bins out for an extra day.

If your bin is not collected or has been missed you can report this via our Waste Service Issue page.
