Collection day changes over the festive season

Christmas Day and New Years Day both fall on a Friday this year. This means Friday rubbish and recycling collections will take place on Saturdays for the next three weeks.

If your collection day is usually on a Friday, you will need to put your bins out on Saturday 26 December and Saturday 2 January.

If your rubbish and recycling is collected Monday to Thursday it will be collected as usual for the next two weeks. In the week starting Monday 4 January, all collections will be one day later than usual because of the public holiday on Monday.

If your rubbish or recycling is usually collected on Monday, it will be collected on Tuesday, if it’s usually collected on Tuesday it will be collected on Wednesday and so on, through to Saturday 9 January 2021. Collections will then return to normal the week beginning Monday 11 January.

You can download the free mobile app Antenno for collection day reminders or you can type in your address in our address finder on the kerbside collection page on to find out what days to put your bins out.

You can also find more information about any collection day changes due to the public holidays at the top of every page on
