Waste collections over Christmas and New Year

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

There are no collections on Monday 26 December and Tuesday 27 December. All collections will roll forward, including the first week in January. Collections will all be back to normal from Monday 9 January.

Residents are urged to check their changed dates on the collection calendar.

The changes are as follows:

Existing day New day
Monday 26 December Wednesday 28 December
Tuesday 27 December Thursday 29 December
Wednesday 28 December Friday 30 December
Thursday 29 December Saturday 31 December
Friday 30 December Monday 2 January

Tuesday 3 January Wednesday 4 January
Wednesday 4 January Thursday 5 January
Thursday 5 January Friday 6 January

Excess glass, cans, cardboard and plastic recycling can be placed in blue or white bags but residents are asked to please remember to keep glass separate. Alternatively it can be taken to the recycling centres located across the district, which will be open throughout the holidays.

Envelopes should be placed in the blue or white bag. However wrapping paper, tissue paper and glittery Christmas cards cannot be recycled and should be placed in the grey bin.
