Hard to believe, but the festive season is almost upon us again, so I thought you’d like early notice of the Christmas and New Year refuse collection arrangements.
The arrangements are as follows:
Christmas Day, Wednesday 25 December: no collection
Boxing day, Thursday 26 December: no collection
New Year’s Day, Wednesday 1 January: normal scheduled collections
Those residents who normally receive a refuse collection on a Wednesday or Thursday (falling on December 25 and 26) will receive a collection on Wednesday (January 1) or Thursday (January 2).
Residents who have a recycling collection service due on Wednesday or Thursday (falling on December 25 and 26) will receive a collection on Wednesday (January 8) or Thursday (January 9).
The city’s five Household Recycling Centres will be open as normal each day, except on Christmas Day and Boxing Day, for any residents with large quantities of waste or recycling that they wish to dispose of between their scheduled collections.
