Easter bin collection dates: How to find out when rubbish is collected over bank holiday


During the upcoming Easter bank holiday bin collection times may differ. Here is everything you need to know about how to find out when your rubbish and recycling is collected

Bin collections will continue over bank holiday, but times may vary

Over the Easter bank holiday many Brits will have a well-deserved rest, meaning some services will operate at reduced hours.

One of the things that will have a reduced timetable are public services, such as bin collections.

Some sectors will be operating on different times to allow workers more time to celebrate Easter with their families, including supermarkets.

However, other councils won’t have their timetable affected by the Easter bank holiday – and it’s hard to keep track.

So how do you know when the bin collection dates are for your rubbish and recycling this Easter? Here is everything you need to know.

How to find bin collection times

Your local bin collection time will depend on where in the country you are located. Some local authorities will have disrupted collection times, while others will stay the same.

The best way to find out when your bins will be collected is to check with your local council.

If there’s no information on your local government website, the easiest thing is to put your postcode into the Gov.uk Rubbish Collection day feature.

Alternatively, many councils will have notified their residents through social media pages. Check their Twitter and Facebook pages to see if they have any new updates.

Many councils will continue to operate as normal. For example Ipswich and East Suffolk and certain London boroughs, such as Camden.

Meanwhile, others will have disrupted services, and may have delayed collections for a day or two.

For example, bin collections in West Suffolk will be one day late in Babergh and Mid Suffolk, meaning bin collections that would normally take place on Friday, April 15 will instead be taken on Saturday, April 16.

In East Staffordshire, if your blue and brown bins, including paper, are usually collected on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays or Fridays, they will be collected as normal.

However, some addresses differ, so it’s best to check the council website.
