Bin collections as normal over Christmas

Created on 14/12/2021 @ 10:34

It will be business as usual when it comes to bin collections over Christmas and New Year.

With the two big days falling on a Saturday, collections will continue as normal for the Bank Holidays with residents advised to put their bins out as they would any other week of the year.

Cllr Heulwen Hulme, Cabinet Member for Waste and Recycling, said: “Christmas is a busy time of year for us all, but it is really important to remember to recycle as much as possible over the festive period.

“Each one of us generates a huge amount more waste than normal over Christmas and New Year, but most of it can be recycled - tin foil, food, glass jars and bottles, real Christmas trees, plain Christmas cards and wrapping paper, batteries, plastic pots and bottles.

“Our crews will be working over the bank holidays to ensure that there will be no changes to the collection days this year, so please remember to put all of your recycling containers and bins out to be collected as normal.”

Residents are also encouraged to follow the service’s social media pages in case services are disrupted by bad weather or unforeseen circumstances.
