Four bin colours

Your bin collections may change over the festive period

Make sure you are aware if your bin collections will change over the festive period as no collections will take place on Christmas Day or New Year's Day.

New collection calendars have been sent to every home in Renfrewshire advising of the change to the normal schedule, so if you have a Friday collection then you should be aware of your adjusted date.

Grey, brown and food bin collections

  • Due 25 December, collected 26 December
  • Due 1 January, collected 2 January

Blue and green recycling bins

  • Due 25 December, collected 27 December
  • Due 1 January, collected 3 January

Properties, like flats, with shared bins and commercial customers

  • Collected one day earlier from Monday 21 December and return to normal from Monday 4 January
  • Food waste collections remain the same, except for Christmas Day and New from Year's Day which will be collected on 26 December and 2 January instead

If you have any questions or are unsure about your festive collections, please get in touch with the team via Bin collections or 0300 300 0380 so we can ensure you present your bin on the correct day.

Thank you to all our teams who are working throughout the festive period to ensure the service can continue.

Councillor Cathy McEwan, Convener of Renfrewshire Council's Infrastructure, Land and Environment Policy Board, said: "Firstly, I would like to take this chance to thank all our collection teams for their work over the festive period as it really is appreciated by everyone in Renfrewshire.

"We know how important collections are at this time of year and our teams will be working extremely hard to ensure that all bins are uplifted, so if you're due a collection on Christmas Day or New Year's Day, then please make sure you know when to put it out instead."
