Bin collections: Christmas and New Year changes for all Nottinghamshire councils

All Nottinghamshire councils have now confirmed any changes to bin collections caused by the festive period.

As Christmas Day falls on a Sunday, there will be a  Bank Holiday on Tuesday, December 26, as well as the standard Bank Holiday for Boxing Day.

It means extra time off for some waste collection teams across the city and county and changes to when residents will have their bins emptied.

Some councils will also be collecting extra bags of household waste to account for the extra demand.

Below are the changes being made by Nottingham City Council as well as each of the county’s district and borough councils.

Revised collection dates have been announced for towns like Hucknall, Sutton and Kirkby over the festive period.

Anyone who would have had their bin collected on Monday, December 26, will instead have it collected on Christmas Eve (Saturday, December 24).

Collections due on Tuesday, December 27 will instead take place on December 28, with this cycle running through until Saturday, January 7 – which will be the revised collection from Friday, January 6.

Extra waste will be collected during this period for people having their red-lidded bins emptied.
