Easter Waste & Recycling Collections 2021

Posted on: Monday 29 March 2021

The Council is pleased to announce that this year we will be collecting waste and recycling on Easter Monday  (5th April 2021), which in previous years wouldn’t have occurred.

Councillor Mandy Owen, Executive member for the Environment, said: "We have listened to our residents, and have changed our collections so all collections will be on their normal day"

"Due to this change we are asking all residents to share the information with family and friends, so no one misses out on a collection. We want to make sure that everyone’s Easter recycling and waste is collected.

"As the anniversary of the start of the first lockdown has just passed, the past year has been tough on everyone because of Covid-19, and I would like to thank residents for their patience and support of our recycling and waste crews. Challenges have been faced like never before. I would also like to thank the recycling and waste crews for their dedication throughout this tough year – thank you."

The collection dates for the Easter period are as follows:

Separating your waste

To help our collection crews it would be helpful if residents separate out their recycling as much as possible, so if you have more than one black box, please try and use one for each material, eg, plastic in one, glass in another if you can. This not only speeds up collections because crews don’t have to manually sort items by hand, but it reduces the amount of waste crews have to handle which would be very much appreciated during the current climate.
