August Bank Holiday Rubbish Collection
As usual with refuse and recycling collections for the Bank Holiday on Monday, 31st August, your collection day will be one day later than normal.
For example, Monday collections will take place on Tuesday and Friday collections on the Saturday. There will be no change for those receiving commercial waste and recycling collection services.
Normal domestic collection schedules will resume a week later on Monday 7 September. Residents are asked to put recycling or refuse out by 6am on the morning of the collection day, but not to leave it on the streets the day before to avoid bags being ripped and to keep roads clean and tidy. Waste should be put out in securely tied sacks or in a bin with a lid which assists with preventing animal attacks and people adding litter.
Changes to collection days also apply to garden waste.
The Household Waste and Recycling Centre at Townmead Road will be open on the Monday but will be operating Sunday hours – 9.00am to 4.00pm with last admission at 3.45pm. However, residents are reminded that they MUST book an appointment online before they visit. Only residents with an appointment will be given access to the site.
