Bank holiday waste and recycling reminder

Posted on: 6 April 2017

With two bank holidays over the Easter weekend, make sure you know when to put your bins out.

There will be no waste or recycling collections on Good Friday. Collections due on Friday 14 April will be made on Saturday 15 April instead.

All waste and recycling collections in the week commencing Monday 17 April will take place one day later that week (running from Tuesday to Saturday).

If your household is full of Easter eggs, make sure you dispose of your waste responsibly by recycling the packaging. Flatten your cardboard Easter egg boxes and place them in your brown bag and scrunch up the foil egg wrappers in a ball and place them in your recycling box.

Head of Operational Services, Ricky McCormack, says: “Waste and recycling collections are always a day late following a bank holiday and with the excitement of Easter, this can easily be forgotten. We have lots of reminder messages going out on social media and you can check your next collection date on our website at any time.

“Please make sure your bins, bags and boxes are at the kerbside before 7am on the day of your collection. This is even more important on days following a bank holiday, as your waste might be collected earlier in the day than you are used to.”

Check when your next collection is on our website.
