NO CHANGES TO WASTE COLLECTIONS DURING JUBILEE BANK HOLIDAY WEEKEND

NO CHANGES TO WASTE COLLECTIONS DURING JUBILEE BANK HOLIDAY WEEKEND

Tendring residents are reminded there are no changes to waste and recycling collections for the two Platinum Jubilee bank holidays.

To honour Queen Elizabeth II’s 70-year reign there are bank holidays on Thursday and Friday, 2-3 June.

However, since the introduction of the new waste service in 2019 bank holidays no longer impact on waste and recycling collection days, except over Christmas.

Households should therefore keep to their current collection day – even if it is on one of the bank holidays – and days can be checked on their recycling calendar or via the MyTendring online portal.

Michael Talbot, Tendring District Council Cabinet Member for Environment, thanked the bin collection crews for their hard work.

“While bank holidays have not altered waste collections for almost two years now, with these once-in-a-generation bank holidays we wanted to remind residents so no-one forgets to put out their rubbish and recycling for collection,” Cllr Talbot said.

“My thanks go to our contractor’s staff for their work over the bank holidays which helps minimise disruption for the rest of us.”

Garden waste collections are also unaffected by the bank holidays.
