Recycling and rubbish collections one day later next week due to Spring Bank Holiday Monday

The Spring Bank Holiday Monday on 25 May means changes to all kerbside recycling and rubbish collections.

With no pick-ups on Monday 25 May, all collections for the rest of the week will be one day later, including those due on Friday 29 May taking place on Saturday 30 May.

The changes affect collections of recycling, refuse, garden waste, as well as clinical waste and assisted collections.

All containers should be out by 7am with recycling contents sorted and segregated. Food must not be added to refuse bins.

For lost or damaged containers, or missed collections, contact district council customer services.

If the weather is windy, weigh down containers or place in a sheltered but clearly visible spot.

Recycling centre timetables are unchanged, including all sites being open as usual on Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday.
