May Bank Holiday waste and recycling collections one day later

Following the Early May Bank Holiday on Monday 3 May, Richmond Council will carry out general waste, food waste, garden waste and recycling collections for domestic properties one day later than usual, for one week.   

For example, Monday collections will take place on Tuesday, and Tuesday collections on Wednesday.   

Following the Bank Holiday: 

  • There will be no collections for bulky waste available on Monday, 3 May 
  • There will be no change for those receiving commercial waste and recycling collection services 

Normal domestic collection schedules for all waste and recycling services will resume a week later on Monday, 10 May 2021.  

Residents are asked to ensure their recycling and refuse is available for collection by 6am on collection day at the boundary of their property beside the entrance, i.e. where their front garden or drive meets the pavement.     

To reduce issues with street litter and trip hazards, only households without front gardens, drives or equivalent are permitted to present recycling and refuse on the pavement and should only do this after 8pm on the day before collection.   

Residents are reminded that Townmead Road Household Waste and Recycling Centre will be open over the Bank Holiday, but pre-booking is essential. Residents can book a slot to bring household waste to Townmead Road for free.  

You can confirm your revised collection day.

For any further enquiries please call 020 8891 1411.
