Information for residents on Council services over the Christmas and New Year period, including changes to bin collection days.
Across Bury there will be some changes to bin collection dates over the two-week festive period. A date change leaflet and a new collection calendar is delivered to all households prior to Christmas.
Bin collection date changes are as follows.
|Normal collection date||Will change to|
|Monday 23 December||Monday 6 January|
|Tuesday 24 December||Monday 23 December|
|Wednesday 25 December||Tuesday 24 December|
|Thursday 26 December||Friday 27 December|
|Friday 27 December||Saturday 28 December|
|Tuesday 31 December||No change|
|Wednesday 1 January||Thursday 2 January|
|Thursday 2 January||Friday 3 January|
|Friday 3 January||Saturday 4 January|
Residents are reminded that there will be no brown bin collections from 23 December to 3 January so that extra effort can be put into emptying the other bin types (grey, green and blue) which can fill up more quickly at this time of year.
Extra waste and recycling can be taken to any household waste recycling centre in Greater Manchester, as can real Christmas trees. Local centres are at Cemetery Road in Radcliffe, Every Street in Bury and Lumns Lane in Clifton. Opening times are from 8am to 6pm daily except on 25 December and 1 January when they are closed.
Throughout the Christmas and New Year period you can continue to report problems and make payments online. Please be aware that we may not process reports or emails until Thursday 2 January 2020.
