Christmas and New Year 2013/14 Waste and Recycling Collections
You can check online when your next few collections will take place for household waste, recycling and garden waste (if you subscribe to the Garden Waste Collection Service) .
Use the 'When are my bins collected' facility on the home page.
The details of the Christmas 2013 and New Year 2014 collections will be published nearer the time.
During the Christmas and New Year period only waste left in bags beside the black bin on a household waste collection day will be accepted. Collection crews will only empty one black bin per property unless extra bin capacity has been authorised.
Recyclable materials in cardboard boxes left beside the brown bin on recycling weeks will be collected throughout the year.
Do not put gift wrap in the brown recycling bin. Most gift wrap is plastic film, foil or heavily over-printed, low grade paper. Used gift wrap is also often scrunched up and covered with sticky tape. Overall it has very little, if any, material benefit for recycling.
During the festive period, the Local Recycling Centres will be monitored and emptied regularly.
The Household Waste Recycling Centres will be open except on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.
