Release Date: 30/05/2012
Following the bank holidays on Monday 4 June and Tuesday 5 June, Richmond Council will carry out waste and recycling collections for domestic properties one day later than usual. For example, Monday collections will take place on Tuesday. There will however be no change to the normal collection day for commercial properties.
Normal service will resume a week later on Monday 11 June. Residents are asked to put recycling or refuse out early on collection day, but not to leave it on the streets the day before, to avoid bags being ripped and to keep roads clean and tidy.
Waste should be put out in securely tied sacks or in a bin with a lid. Lids stop the bin from becoming waterlogged and people adding litter. Residents who are holding a street party over the bank holiday are asked to be mindful of the changes and recycle as much as possible.
