Christmas Bins 2022

There are changes to your waste and recycling collections during December 2022 and January 2023.

  • The garden waste collection service stops, as normal, for 4 weeks (2 collections) between Monday, December 12th and Friday, January 6th
  • Between Monday, December 12th and Friday, January 6th, your grey bin will be collected weekly
  • There are no bin collections on Monday, December 26th due to the Boxing Day holiday. All collections that week will be a day later than normal, for example, if your bins are normally emptied on a Monday, they will be emptied on Tuesday, and if your bins are normally emptied on Friday, they will be emptied on Saturday
  • If you are signed up for garden waste collections, you can leave your real Christmas tree next to your green bin for collection on your green bin collection date between Monday, January 9th and Friday, January 20th (No decorations/lights/pots/stands. Real trees only. Trees over 6 feet tall need to be cut down.)
