Bin collections over Christmas and New Year 2019/20

Posted: Wed, 11 Dec 2019 08:52 by Site Editor

Extract from SNC web site :

Arrangements for bin collections over Christmas and New Year 2019/20

  • Collections due Wednesday 25 December will be made on Monday 23 December
  • Collections due Thursday 26 December will be made on Saturday 28 December
  • Collections due 1 January will be made on Monday 30 December

All households who have a Wednesday or Thursday collection will get a tag on their bin in early December to inform them of the above. More »

There will be no green bin collections during weeks commencing 23 December and 30 December.

It is expected additional recycling will be created over the festive period. Cardboard and non-foil wrapping paper can go in your blue recycling bin. Foil based wrapping will need to go in your black waste bin.

As usual after the festive period you can dispose of your real Christmas trees, minus the decorations of course, by placing it in, or next to your green bin. Please make sure it is cut into pieces that are 4 foot tall or smaller. » Less
