Reasons for changes in collection days

We’ve had to change the collection days for most bins this year because of the opening hours of the disposal facilities that we take our waste and recycling to. They are not open on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day due to licensing restrictions. This means we would have nowhere to take waste from the district. 

We have therefore moved collection days so that everyone gets a regular collection without having to wait much longer than normal.

We will not be able to return for bins not presented on collection day. Please help share news of the changes with your neighbours.
