New Year bin pick-ups
South Lanarkshire Council has confirmed a change of date for wheelie bin collections this week.
There is no change to those whose bins are normally emptied on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
However, with New Year’s Day falling on Thursday, the council has changed the collection day.
Those whose bins are normally emptied on Thursdays will have them collected on Saturday, January 3.
Those whose bins are due to be emptied on January 2 should put their bins out as normal.
A council spokesman said:“Please ensure your bin is out for collection before 7am. We cannot guarantee the time that your bin will be emptied but it will be emptied on your day of collection.
“The only exemption to this will be during periods of extreme weather when we must wait until road conditions improve or if access is restricted.”
