East Suffolk residents are encouraged to check their bin collection day ahead of the festivities next week.

Bin hangers have been distributed to all Suffolk Coastal and Waveney households, providing residents with details about wheeled bin collections between Christmas and New Year.

During weeks commencing 24 December and 31 December, bins may be collected on a different day to the usual schedule. Customers are advised to check their bin hanger for details of any changes to their collection day. Alternatively, you can check the collection day online at eastsuffolk.gov.uk/refuse-collection

Customers should also make sure their bin is out by 6am on the day of collection as collection crews may come at different times to normal.

Cllr Carol Poulter, Suffolk Coastal’s Cabinet Member for Green Environment and Cllr Graham Catchpole, Waveney’s Cabinet Member for Operational Partnerships, said: “Our partners Suffolk Coastal Norse and Waveney Norse work hard during the Christmas period to ensure that the frequency of collections is retained, despite the Bank Holidays. Residents are advised to check their bin hanger for any changes to their usual collections over the festive period and to also ensure the correct waste is placed into each bin. Much of the extra waste which households generate at Christmas, such as wrapping paper and Christmas cards, can be easily recycled.”

Normal collections will resume from Monday 7 January 2019.

To check when your bin is due to be emptied at any time of the year or to see which bin is due to be collected, please visit www.eastsuffolk.gov.uk/waste.
