Important changes to festive bin collections

Uttlesford District Council is advising residents of some important changes to the bin collection schedule over the festive season.

Collections will take place as normal in the week leading up to Christmas. This will be a green-lidded recycling bin collection week.

However, there will be no bin collections made the following week (beginning 26 December).

Collections will then resume from 2 January 2023. This will be for the grey-lidded general waste bin and food caddy. Extra black bags can be placed at the side of your bin for collection for this week only.

The following week (commencing 9 January) will be a green-lidded recycling bin collection week. Extra recycling can be placed at the side of your bin for collection as usual. Please put items in white or clear bags - no black bin liners.

Residents can stay up to date with recycling and bin collection news by subscribing to receive the e-newsletter - sign up at www.uttlesford.gov.uk/keep-me-posted - or by following the council on Facebook or Twitter (search @UttlesfordDC).
