Bank Holiday bin changes

Date Published: 26 April 2022

There will be a change to bin collections to help accommodate for the upcoming May Bank Holiday.

Those with black bin collections which would fall on Monday 2 May are asked to present their bin instead on Saturday 30 April.

Those with brown garden waste bins whose collection day would fall on Monday 2 May are also asked to present them on that Saturday.

Please present your bin before 7.30am on the day of collection. All other collections remain unchanged.

Collections will not be impacted by the Jubilee holidays at the beginning of June. We will be collecting as normal on the Thursday and Friday, June 2 and 3. You are asked to consider the need for the freighters to access all routes in order to carry out their collections on those days.

Residents can find their bin days at any time online by visiting
