No changes to waste collections over may bank holiday weekends

Tendring residents are reminded there are no changes to waste and recycling collections over the two May bank holiday weekends.

Since the introduction of the new waste service in 2019 bank holidays no longer impact on collection days, except around the Christmas period.

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

A Tendring District Council spokesman said it was hoped residents accepted this as the norm now.

“Although bank holidays have not affected waste collections for almost two years now, we want to remind residents of this so no-one forgets to put out their rubbish and recycling for collection.”

Garden waste collections are also unaffected by the bank holidays.
