Bank Holiday recycling and waste collection days one day later

Following the Easter Bank Holidays on Friday 14 April and Monday 17 April,  waste and recycling collections for domestic properties will be carried out one day later than usual. 

For example Friday collections will take place on Saturday and the Monday collections will take place on Tuesday. There will be no change for those receiving commercial waste and recycling collection services.

Normal domestic collection schedules will resume a week later on Monday 24 April. Residents are asked to put recycling or refuse out early on collection day, but not to leave it on the streets the day before to avoid bags being ripped and to keep roads clean and tidy.

Waste should be put out in securely tied sacks or in a bin with a lid which assists with preventing animal attacks and . people adding litter.

The Household Waste and Recycling Centre at Townmead Road will be open on the bank holidays and will be operating Sunday hours on both days – 9.00am to 4.00pm with last admission at 3.45pm.
