Monday 7 May Public Holiday - bin collections

Due to the public holiday on Monday 7 May, there will be some changes to the scheduled bin collection calendar.

Food Waste

If residents Food Waste is due to be collected on Monday 7 May, it should be present it for collection on Sunday 6 May.

Blue Bins

For residents whose Blue Bins are scheduled to be collected on Monday 7 May, they should present their Blue Bins on Tuesday 8 May and leave them out until they are collected. Our crews will collect these Blue Bins from the Tuesday through to Friday.

All other bin collections

All other scheduled bin collections for Monday 7 May should operate as per the scheduled bin calendar.

Household Waste Recycling Centres

Due to the Public Holiday, Household Waste Recycling Centres are also closed on Monday 7 May.

We are reliant on employees volunteering to work on this public holiday to deliver the plan above. We are working actively to encourage as many trained employees as possible to take up the offer to work to cover these collections.


Brown Bins

With regards to Brown Bin collection the position is that we are back on our scheduled collections, include those planned for Monday 7 May.

The caveat is that whilst the service aim to carry out collections as scheduled if the service experiences high levels of vehicle breakdowns then collections for Brown Bins in particular can become delayed as occurred in the week commencing the 23 April, but the service will work to catch up by the end of the scheduled collection week.

There are reports of areas where Brown Bins have still not been collected and some of these are historical and are now complete. As it stands the service cannot go back to areas noted as incomplete or reported as such prior to the 23 April . Residents within these areas have been advised to take their containers back in and present them at their next scheduled collection date.
