Christmas 2017 waste collection changes

  1. Christmas 2017 waste collection changes
  2. All collection dates

The rubbish, recycling and green garden waste collection services will change on the following dates this Christmas and New Year.

Black rubbish bin

We will be emptying black rubbish bins once a fortnight as usual, until Friday 15 December 2017.

Every household will have their black rubbish bins emptied during the week of 18-22 December 2017 inclusive AND during the week 1-5 January 2018 inclusive. These collections will take place on your normal collection day, including on New Year's Day.

We will restart the fortnightly collection service during the fortnight 8 January to 19 January 2018. Between these dates you will receive a black rubbish bin waste collection on your normal collection day, during the week that we do NOT empty your blue-lid recycling bin. The service will then continue once a fortnight.

We will tag bins that are affected by these changes.

Blue-lid recycling bin

We will continue to empty blue-lid recycling bins once a fortnight, on your normal collection day, as usual.

However, we will not empty bins that are due for emptying on Christmas Day or Boxing Day.

  • If your blue-lid recycling bin is due to be emptied on Christmas Day as part of the fortnightly cycle, we will empty it on Thursday 28 December instead.
  • If your blue-lid recycling bin is due to be emptied on Boxing Day as part of the fortnightly cycle, we will empty it on Friday 29 December instead.

All other collections will take place on their normal scheduled dates, including on New Year's day.

We will tag bins that are affected by these changes.

Green garden waste collection service

The green garden waste collection service will be suspended for a short period this Christmas.

The last fortnightly green garden waste collections before Christmas will take place between 4 December and 15 December as usual on the same day that we empty your blue-lid recycling bin.

We will restart the fortnightly collection service between 8 January and 19 January 2018 as usual on the same day that we empty your blue-lid recycling bin.

The service will then continue every fortnight as long as you renew your subscription before it expires at the end of March 2018.

The garden waste collection service is only provided to households that have opted in and paid the subscription fee.
