Bank holiday rubbish and recycling collections

During public and bank holidays our rubbish and recycling collection schedules change.

Collection times are likely to change. It is important that all sacks are presented by 7am on your revised collection day.

Next bank holiday: 25 December (Christmas Day) and 26 December (Boxing Day)

The below applies to household waste (black sacks) and recycling waste (orange sacks) as well as clinical waste.

There will be no garden waste or bulky collections from 25 December until 8 January.

Please be aware that these dates are subject to change depending on weather conditions so please check back if your bins have not been collected on the revised dates below.

Information on Gerpins Lane opening times can be found on the Gerpins Lane website.

Collections will run as normal up to and including 22 December.

During Christmas and New Year, your orange sacks and black sacks may be collected by separate collection vehicles. This means that if only one type of sack is collected, it is likely another vehicle will return to collect the remaining sacks later in the day. Please wait until after 4pm to raise a missed collection request.

If you think your rubbish has been missed please visit our report a missed bin page.
