by timpickstone on 17 December, 2020

Bury Town Hall and most non-critical services will be closed from 5pm on Thursday 23 December 2020 and will reopen again at 8.45am on Monday 4 January 2021. Some services will be operating with different opening times with key details below. For the full and up to date list see this post.

Customer Contact Team

  • Open 10am to 4pm on Tuesday 29, Wednesday 30 and Thursday 31 December (for help with urgent food or medication supplies related to coronavirus and for rubbish, recycling and environment-related enquiries only).
  • Open for business as usual from 8.45am on Monday 4 January 2021.
  • To phone our Customer Contact Team dial 0161 253 5353.

Bins are a Day Early

Bury Council is reminding residents throughout the borough of Bury that their bin collections will be a day earlier than usual in the week prior to Christmas.

Collections on Tuesday 29, Wednesday 30 and Thursday 31 December are unchanged and collections due on Friday 1 January will take place one day later on Saturday 2 January. 

There will be no brown bin collections from 21 December to 1 January because garden waste is reduced at this time of year and most households will still have enough space in their brown bin for any extra food waste. Suspending brown bins for this short period also allows collection crews to put extra effort into emptying the other bins which can fill up more quickly at this time of year.
