Holiday bin collections announced
A CALENDAR of Christmas and New Year bin collection days has been announced.
Derbyshire Dales District Council says the bank holidays will be one day later than usual and households who would expect their bins to be collected on the Tuesday of Christmas Day will need to put their waste out three days earlier, on Saturday, December 22.
As Christmas Day falls on a Tuesday, it means the week leading up to Christmas - including Christmas Eve - will be business as usual, apart from the additional Saturday collection for usual Tuesday households on the 22nd.
The authority’s contractor Serco will not be working Boxing Day but will collect usual Wednesday waste and recycling on Thursday, December 27, working extra days on Saturdays 22 and 29, and January 5. The council says no additional household waste will be collected.
