Richmondshire District Council

Christmas waste collection dates

Refuse and recycling collection dates across Richmondshire are revised due to the Christmas and New Year holidays.

Residents can check their changed dates via our bin collection calendar.

Excess glass, plastic and cans can be placed out for collection on scheduled recycling days but residents are asked to use their boxes for all glass and place plastic and cans for collection in open carrier bags. Bags should not be used for glass.

Christmas cards, envelopes and wrapping paper should be placed in the blue or white bag – but should only be put out on collection day to keep it dry. Tissue paper cannot be placed in the blue/white bag - it should be placed in the grey bin. 

There will be a special collection of Christmas trees and garden waste on week commencing January 13 for residents who subscribe to the green bin collection service and who have booked a Christmas tree collection.
