Easter waste and recycling collections reminder
Posted on: 20 March 2018
As the Easter bank holidays approach, make sure you know when to put your waste and recycling out for collection.
There will be no waste or recycling collections on Good Friday (30 March). Collections due that day will be made on Saturday 31 March instead.
All waste and recycling collections in the week commencing Monday 2 April will take place one day later that week (running from Tuesday to Saturday).
Lots of homes will have more cardboard and foil than usual, thanks to a visit from the Easter bunny. Residents are being asked to dispose of this additional waste in a responsible way by recycling the packaging; flatten cardboard Easter egg boxes and put them in your brown bags, and scrunch up foil before putting it in your recycling box. Any plastic boxes (except black plastic) can also be recycled.
Lead Member for the Environment, Rodney Cann says: “Waste and recycling collections are always a day late following a bank holiday, but to remind you of this we have lots of posts going out on social media and if you’re in any doubt about your collection dates you can check our website any time.
“Please make sure you leave your bins and recycling containers at the kerbside before 7am on the day of your collection to avoid them being missed by our crews. Following a bank holiday, when your collection day changes, your waste may well be collected earlier in the day than you are used to.”
