As it’s the Spring bank holiday this weekend, the council is reminding residents of their alternative collection days.

Ubico (the Councils waste collection contractor) will not be working on Monday 25 May and so collections of waste, recycling, food and garden waste will take place a day later than usual that week, as follows:

 Normal collection day  Revised collection day
 Monday 25 May (bank holiday)  Tuesday 26 May
 Tuesday 26 May  Wednesday 27 May
 Wednesday 27 May  Thursday 28 May
 Thursday 28 May  Friday 29 May
 Friday 29 May  Saturday 30 May

Normal scheduled collections will resume from Monday 1 June.

In some areas refuse and recycling collections take place as early as 7am so residents are asked to present their food caddies, refuse/garden waste bins and/or bags and recycling boxes in good time.

The Swindon Road recycling centre will be open on the bank holiday, 9am until 1pm, with usual opening hours on all other days.
