As well as maintaining normal collection arrangements on Good
Friday, the teams are also urging residents to work egg-stra hard
on recycling their Easter Bank Holiday waste.
An average of 80 million Easter eggs are sold in the UK each
year, offering chocolate heaven but a lot of packaging. Make
sure you look for eggs that have the least amount of packaging in
the first place and ensure all recyclable packaging is put out for
collection in the usual way. Alternatively, make your own
hand-painted eggs, or bake Easter treats instead.
Bank Holidays mean food and, whether it is a Bank Holiday
barbecue, Easter roast or even a party buffet, remember to recycle
plastic food tubs, pots and bottles, tins, cardboard and cartons in
your blue recycling bin or sack.
Paul Thompson Waste Operations Manager said:
"Our staff are working on Good Friday so that residents can sit
back, relax and enjoy the long weekend. There are no
collections on Easter Monday so we are asking all residents to take
note of their revised collection dates for that week."
All households in the borough have previously received a
calendar for the full year with collection dates on.
Residents are reminded to have their refuse available at the
boundary of their property by 7am on the correct collection
