Recycling, rubbish and garden waste collections will again spring forward following the bank holiday on Monday, 27 May.

There will be no collections on bank holiday Monday and kerbside collections will all be one day later than usual for the rest of the week.

If your recycling and/or rubbish is usually collected on a Monday, then it will be collected on a Tuesday, if your usual day is a Tuesday it will be collected on Wednesday and so on. This includes collections that would usually take place on Friday 31 May taking place on Saturday 1 June.

With waste collections a day later a higher volume of waste is likely. Squashing, crushing and flattening waste can help to reduce the number of trips that teams need to make to empty their trucks, as well as creating more space in resident’s containers.

All 16 recycling sites will be open as usual at the weekend, 9am to 4pm. And, if opening on a Monday is part of their normal opening pattern, they will be open on Bank Holiday Monday (27 May), from 9am to 6pm. For opening times and to find a full list of what can be recycled please visit:
