Residents are reminded that recycling and waste crews will be operating as normal around the bank holiday on Monday 31 August, with no delay to any of the week’s collections.
This includes the first week’s collection of the garden waste under the new permit.
The new garden waste permit costs just £12 and covers a shorter period than usual – Monday 31 August to Friday 4 December 2020. Over 20,000 residents have now subscribed for the new permit.
