Minor tweaks to bin collections over Christmas Holidays

Only minor changes will be made to bin rounds this Christmas as the Council tries to keep on top of waste collections.

Crews will be out and about throughout the festive season and unless your usual waste collection day falls on Christmas Day, Boxing Day or New Year's Day you should put your bins and boxes out as normal.

Those whose collection would fall on Christmas Day will have their collections brought forward to Saturday, December 20th. Meanwhile, Bo×ing Day's collection will now be made on Saturday 27th. Anybody whose collection would be on New Year's Day will now have their waste taken away on Saturday, January 3rd.

Bin tags detailing the collections have already been attached to bins in the district by Selby District Council, how have worked with contractors, Améy, to keep disruption to a minimum.

In order to focus attention on collecting wrapping paper, present packaging, glass and tins, foil and all household plastics (apart from thin film), the Council will be suspending the collection of garden greens over Christmas, like in previous years. The suspension with take effect from Monday, December 15th and run until Friday, January 9th.

All recycling and refuse should be left at the boundary of your property by 7am on collection day. Most extra waste at this time of year can be recycled. Extra refuse left with your bin will not be collected unless your collection falls on Christmas Day – these residents will be provided with a sack for any extra waste.

Additional recycling, apart from glass, that does not fit into the boxes provided can be left out for collection in separate plastic bags. Any extra glass should be left in the plastic box to protect against breakages. When green waste collections start again (week commencing January 12th) real Christmas trees (less than 6ft tall with a trunk of less than 4 inches thick) can also be left out for collection. Decorations should be removed.
