Bank holiday collections

Bank holiday collections


On bank holidays we may change your usual bin collection day.

If your bin is normally emptied on a Monday we will usually come to empty it on the Saturday before a bank holiday Monday*. Other collections that week will usually stay the same, even on Good Friday.

Full details of bank holiday collections are on the bin calendar we will put under your black bin lid, early in December, or you can check your bin collection dates here.

Find out how and when to put your bin out.

    Please note:

    Due to a technical issue, some Christmas collections guides have been distributed today (Monday 16 November) with an error in the printed information.

    If you have received a Christmas collection guide with your bin today, please dispose of it; an updated version will be distributed to you.
