With the bank holiday fast approaching, Cheltenham’s residents are reminded of the slight alterations to waste, recycling, food and garden waste collections.

There will be no collections on bank holiday Monday (28 August) and collections will run a day later than normal. Please note this may mean that some residents will have their collections on a Saturday. All collections will return to normal on Monday 4 September.
