Rushcliffe Borough Council’s Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Environment and Safety Cllr Rob Inglis said:
“We’ve changed our bin collection dates on the Bank Holiday Monday for the State Funeral of Queen Elizabeth II and our waste teams are working hard to ensure there are arrangements in place for all bins to be collected on alternative days.
“We understand residents in Rushcliffe who usually have their bins collected on Monday will be affected by our revised bin collection and thank residents for ensuring their grey, blue or green bin is put out on their new date.
“For any questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org”
The bin collection times for affected residents will return to normal the following week.
