Rubbish and recycling collection dates and times are set to change over the Christmas period. There will be no collections on Christmas Day, Boxing Day or New Years Day as bin operatives take a Christmas break.

There will be no garden waste collections from Tuesday, December 24 to Friday, January 3. This will resume from Monday, January 6.

The changed recycling and waste collection dates are as follows:
