During the week commencing 18 December or 25 December 2017, you will receive an extra general waste collection (green or grey bin) instead of the garden waste (brown bin) collection.

During Christmas week, your bin and box collection days will change due to bank holidays. All bins, boxes and bag collections on week commencing Monday 25 December will move to the next day. For example, if your normal collection is on a Tuesday, your collections that week will move to Wednesday, Wednesday collections will move to Thursday and so on through to Friday collections that move to Saturday.

During the week commencing 1 January and 8 January, garden waste bins (brown bins) will not be collected. There will be no extra general waste collections during this time as the garden waste vehicles will be used to support general waste vehicles with the additional demand over Christmas. Brown bin collections will start again week commencing Monday 16 January.
