Green bins

Don't forget your bin collections may change at Christmas

If you are due a bin collection on Christmas Day or New Year's Day, these have been rearranged to earlier in the week.

So what are the changes?

Grey, blue or food waste bins due to be collected on Wednesday 25 December or Wednesday 1 January will be collected the previous Sunday, on 22 and 29 December.

Green bin, brown bin, sack collection or bulk bin recycling due to be collected on Wednesday 25 December or Wednesday 1 January will be collected the previous Monday, on 23 and 30 December.

Bulk bin residual, food or trade waste due to be collected on Wednesday 25 December or Wednesday 1 January will be collected the previous day on Tuesday 24 and 31 December.

All bins due to be collected on all other days will be collected as normal.

You should have received a new collection calendar to your home, which includes your festive collections, and these are available to download from My Bins if not.

I've got extra recycling or waste, what can I do with it?

Our Household Waste Recycling Centres are open every day, except Christmas Day and New Year's Day, for any excess recycling or waste generated over the festive period.

Thank you to our collection teams

Councillor Cathy McEwan, Convener of Renfrewshire Council's Infrastructure, Land and Environment Policy Board, said: "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 as normal.

"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.

"I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone in our collection teams for their hard work and dedication over the festive period, it really is appreciated."
