Revised waste and recycling collections - Easter
Householders are being reminded that refuse and recycling collections have been revised over the Easter bank holiday weekend.
Collections will be as normal until Good Friday, April 6. Most collections during the week following Easter will take place a day later than usual, with the exception of those whose waste and recycling is normally collected on Friday. The revised collections will be as follows:
Normal collection --> Revised collection
Friday 6 April (Good Friday) --> Saturday 14 April
Monday 9 April (Easter Monday) --> Tuesday 10 April
Wednesday 11 April --> Thursday 12 April
Thursday 12 April --> Friday 13 April
Friday 13 April --> Saturday 14 April
Normal collections will resume from Monday 16 April.
Clear plastic sacks have been delivered to Friday collection households for excess recycling. Residents are asked to use the sacks for one recyclable material only - paper, or plastic, or cardboard, but not glass - and to leave them out alongside their black recycling boxes for collection on Saturday 14 April only.
Excess waste will also be picked up on Saturday 14 April only.
