Christmas waste collections

MONDAY will see waste collection return to normal after the Christmas break.

The brown wheelie bin collections were suspended from December 23 but will resume from the week beginning January 6. Crews have been focusing on collecting extra recycling.

Real Christmas trees can be placed either inside or next to brown wheelie bins for collection, also starting on Monday January 6

Daventry District Council (DDC) has also stated that households who do not have brown wheelie bins can place trees next to their recycling boxes and waste sacks from January 6. Alternatively they can take them to any one of the town’s waste recycling centres.

DDC’s environment portfolio holder, Cllr Daniel Cribbin, said: “Residents in Daventry District have always stepped up to the challenge of recycling as much as they can over Christmas and I am sure this year will be no exception.”
