We will collect your waste as normal on all Bank Holidays, apart from those at Christmas and New Year.

Christmas and New Year collections for Christmas 2017/18 are as follow:

December 27 and 28December 28
December 29Normal collection day
January 1 and 2January 2

All other collection days remain the same unless disrupted due to bad weather or vehicle problems

Disruption due to severe bad weather

If the weather is very bad, such as heavy snow, we may not be able to collect your bin safely. When this happens we need you to leave your bin out until we can return to empty it. 

If your bin hasn't been emptied within 24 hours of the normal collection day, we will collect a reasonable amount of extra waste or recycling when we do come to empty the bin. 

Please leave this waste or recycling in a bag by the side of your bin. We won't be able to empty your bin if the lid is not fully closed.  

Where there are delays due to bad weather we sometimes need to cancel Green Bin collections to catch up.
