Council announces changes to festive waste collections
COTSWOLD District Council’s (CDC) waste and recycling collector Ubico Ltd, will not be making collections over the Christmas period Bank Holidays.
Collections will not be made on Tuesday or Wednesday and also Tuesday, January 1.
However, the crews will be working on Saturday, December 29 and Saturday, December 5 and Saturday, January 12 to catch up with missed collections.
CDC Waste Manager Scott Williams said: “We realise that the amounts of non-recyclable waste are also greater during this busy time and we will be allowing a ‘side waste amnesty’ for every household’s first full collection after Christmas Day.
“This will allow residents to leave out additional amounts of non-recyclable waste in bin liners next to their grey wheeled bin/beige refuse bags on their temporarily revised first collection after Christmas Day and everything will be collected.
“Please ensure that all containers are placed at the kerb by 7am on the revised day of collection.”
