A reminder that in addition to your scheduled recycling (blue bin/blue bags) collections, household waste collections are happening this week and next (w/c 21 and 28 December) to help with the usual build-up of festive throw-away material. So don't forget to put out your grey bins/black bags this week and next.
To help prioritise household waste collections, all garden waste (green bin/compostable sacks) collections are suspended during these two weeks.
Food waste collections will continue to happen weekly and recycling collections fortnightly.
Every household in the district received a Christmas and New Year collections timetable in the October issue of our Dales Matters publication, and a collection calendar is also available to view or download online.
Usual collection days apply Monday-Thursday this week but will be generally later than usual from Christmas Day throughout the festive period.
