Bank holiday means all change for waste

The Summer Bank Holiday on Monday 28 August means all collections that week, up to Friday 1 September, will take place one day later, including Friday pick-ups on Saturday 2 September.

Recycling sites remain on their usual schedules throughout the week, including all 16 opening at 8am on Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday.

Following the recent relaxation of weekend hours for permit holders, customers with permits for vans, pick-ups, campervans, minibuses and car-towed trailers can use any recycling site, when open, at any time on weekdays, weekends and bank holidays.
