Festive period refuse and recycling collections changes

Tuesday, 15 December, 2020

Bin collection days are changing slightly over the festive period and residents are being urged to check the amended arrangements.

For residents who receive a collection on a Friday (Christmas Day and New Year’s Day) or Saturday (Boxing Day and January 2), refuse and recycling collections will be running two days later on the Sunday and Monday respectively. The Waste team will be working until 9pm on these days and delays are expected so please leave your bin on pavement until collection has taken place. Collections on all other days will remain the same.

Normal collection days will resume on Tuesday 5 January 2021. Please ensure your bins and food caddies are out on the kerbside the night before your relevant collection day as collections may be earlier than usual.

Joint Council Leader Vaughan Moody, said, "Over the Christmas period, most of us are out of our normal routine and it can be easy to forget about things like bin collections, especially if they fall on a different day. I’d encourage people to double check collection dates and ensure that their bin is on the kerb the night before your relevant collection day.”

Joint Council Leader Andrew Polson, said, “Our Waste teams will be working hard to ensure that disruption during the festive season is kept to a minimum and that collections affected by the public holidays are swiftly caught up upon. In addition to the kerbside collections, I would encourage people to make use of our recycling sites throughout the area for the extra waste that can be generated at this time of year.”

Residents can find detailed information on the location, opening times and what can be recycled at our recycling sites on our website. by calling 0300 123 4510, or by emailing recycling@eastdunbarton.gov.uk

The Mavis Valley Recycling Centre site will also be closed on Christmas Day and Boxing Day and on 1 and 2 January 2021. Over the festive period the site will be open to the public Monday to Sunday from 9am - 4pm. Vans will not be permitted on site after 3pm..
