Bank Holiday recycling and waste collection days one day later

Release Date: 28 April 2017

Following the May Bank Holiday on Monday 1 May, we will carry out waste and recycling collections (including Garden Waste Collections) for domestic properties one day later than usual.

For example, Monday collections will take place on Tuesday. There will be no change for those businesses receiving commercial waste and recycling collection services.

Normal domestic collection schedules will resume a week later on Monday 8 May. 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 which assists with preventing animal attacks.

The Household Waste and Recycling Centre at Townmead Road will be open on the Bank Holiday on Monday 1 May and will be operating Sunday hours – 9am to 4pm with last admission at 3.45pm.

For all enquiries about collections, please telephone 020 8891 1411
