I have today received a note from the fleet and waste management department telling me the arrangements for Christmas rubbish collections.
There will be no collection on Christmas Day and Boxing Day although scheduled collections will take place as normal on January 1st.
There will be no “catch up” for those whose collection days are Tuesday and Wednesday and so are missed next week. Those with a Tuesday collecton will have their next rubbish collection on January 1st and the next recycling on January 8th. Those with a Wednesday collection will have their next collection (after Christmas) on Wednesday January 2nd and their next recycling on January 9th.
These means that some people (including me) will have no scheduled recycling collection for 4 weeks. There will be notices on the BCC website and in the local press informing people of the arrangements. Waste and recycling can be taken to the Household Recycling Centres (tips) which will be open as usual each day except Christmas Day and Boxing Day for residents who wish to dispose of waste outside of the scheduled collections.
