West Norfolk Council reminds residents to check on changes to bin collection dates over Christmas

Residents have been reminded to look out for changes to bin collection dates due to Christmas and New Year falling on Bank Holidays.

Brown bin collections will continue to take place during the festive break, and people can check on West Norfolk Council’s website to see when their pick-ups will take place.

The borough council has also reminded residents that weekly food waste collections will continue, creating extra black bin space.

There will be no collections on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day.

Cllr Sandra Squire, the borough council cabinet member for environment and coastal, said: “I would like to personally thank our collection crews who work hard all year round.

“The Christmas and New Year holidays are the busiest time of the year for domestic waste and recycling and I ask that residents do what they can to support our collection crews.

“Please can residents plan ahead for how they manage their waste and recycling over the holiday season.

“With Bank Holidays falling on Monday and Tuesday for Christmas, along with another one the following Monday for New Years Day, there are some unavoidable delays for collection rounds and I recommend that people check when their bins will be collected.

"Please remember that you can put additional recycling in any clear bag and put it out with your green recycling bin for collection.

"This year we introduced weekly small electrical and used battery collections. I urge our residents to take advantage of these additional services."

West Norfolk residents can dispose of any excess waste before Christmas by taking it to household waste recycling centres – check norfolk.gov.uk for opening times and locations.

As well as being published online at west-norfolk.gov.uk/yourbins details about festive waste and recycling collections will be printed on the back pages of Your Local Paper and the Lynn News this Friday.

To report that your bin has not been emptied, people can search for 'missed bin' at west-norfolk.gov.uk or call 0330 1099220.

They should report this within two days after the collection was due and before midday on the second day.
