When are your collections this Christmas?

Festive waste collections – recycling and rubbish, assisted pick-ups and clinical waste but not garden waste – will be two days later after Christmas, including Friday collections on Sunday, and one day later after New Year.

As usual, there will be no garden waste collections from 23 December to 3 January; they resume from 6 January.

Before and after Christmas and New Year, please do not overload our vehicles or crews. Put excess materials from festive parties, internet deliveries and Christmas clear-ups out over time or take them all to a recycling site.

Individual recycling site opening days vary – check details here – but the network is open every day of the year except Christmas, Boxing and New Year days. All sites will be open 9am to 4pm on Saturdays and Sundays on 21-22 and 28-29 December, and 4-5 January.

Your recycling options for a real Christmas tree include: home composting, take it to a recycling site or council drop-off point, or book a charity collection. Garden waste subscribers only can add their undecorated tree under 6ft to their garden waste collection from 7 January.
