For households’ first black bin collection after Christmas, each home can put out an extra two black bags of side waste.

Households subscribed to the garden waste brown bin service are reminded there are no collections over the Christmas and New Year period, but they can leave a Christmas tree out with their bin for their first collection afterwards.

The collection day of the week for garden waste is unchanged.
