Christmas 2016 waste collection details confirmed

Birmingham News Logo (1)

Residents in Birmingham are being reminded of this year’s Christmas and new year waste collection arrangements with one month to go until festivities begin.

As is normally the case, the council’s crews, who work on all other Bank Holidays, will not operate on Christmas Day, Boxing Day (or any Bank Holidays when either of those two particular days are at the weekend).

This year that means there will be no collections of refuse or recycling on Monday 26th December and Tuesday 27th December.Christmas 2016

That means anyone with collections on those days will have their household bins picked up one week later and their recycling bins will be collected two weeks later.

All other collections remain unchanged, including those on Bank Holiday Monday (2nd January 2017).

It is recognised during the festive period that many households produce more waste. For those with wheelie bins, reasonable amounts of household waste will be collected if presented in bags at the side of the bins.

Excess paper and card recycling will be collected if bundled securely with string and presented alongside the recycling bin.

Residents’ support in helping to keep the streets of Birmingham litter and rubbish free over the busy holiday period is greatly appreciated.

Please note: The city’s five Household Recycling Centres will be closed on Christmas Day and Boxing Day (Sunday 25th December and Monday 26th December) – but will be open on all other days. For more details visit: www.birmingham.gov.uk/tips
