Bank holiday rubbish and recycling collection days

Collection days for households and businesses during the bank holiday periods.

Christmas and new year collection days

If your collection day is usually a Monday, your waste and recycling collection scheduled for Monday 25 December is moving to Saturday 23 December. This will help us to ensure the shortest period of disruption to residents and enable normal waste collections to return as quickly as possible, from Monday 8 January 2024. 

All other revised collection days are 1 day later.
