Changes to collections for Christmas & New Year

Christmas Day & New Years day falls on a Monday for this calendar schedule so rubbish and recycling will be picked up a day later from your normal recycling day:

  • E.g. your normal collection day falls on Monday the 25th of December, this will mean your collection day will be one day later, Tuesday.
  • If your normal collection day is a Tuesday it will be picked up on Wednesday and so on throughout the week.
  • This changed collection schedule will continue through the New year week and return to normal collection 8th of January 2018
