Residents have been reminded of changes to recycling and waste collections over the Christmas and New Year period.


There will be no collections on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.

This means regular recycling and brown bin collections have been altered for the majority of residents over the coming weeks.

Over the next fortnight, residents face delays of up to three days.

From Monday, January 6, collections will take place one day later than usual for all households.

Collections will return to normal the week beginning Monday, January 14.

Stickers detailing the changes have been placed on all brown bins.
