Christmas & New Year Bin Collections:

As we’re all busy with the festivities it’s easy to forget that bin collections can change due to the holiday dates.

With the extra waste that is generated at this time of year, it important to note the new collection dates: –

Normal Collection Date New Collection Date
Monday 24th December Monday 7th January
Tuesday 25th December Monday 24th December
Wednesday 26th December Thursday 27th December
Thursday 27th December Friday 28th December
Friday 28th December Saturday 29th December
Monday 31st December No Change
Tuesday 1st January Wednesday 2nd January
Wednesday 2nd January Thursday 3rd January
Thursday 3rd January Friday 4th January
Friday 4th January Saturday 5th January

Collections will return to normal from Monday 7th January 2019.

If you are looking to dispose of your real tree, the Council recommend that you remove all decorations, lights and the wooden base, then chop it up so it fits inside your brown bin.  If you went all out this year and won’t be able to fit it in your brown bin, you can take it to the recycling centre where it will be disposed of.

Recycling Centre
