Christmas waste collections in the district

Selby District Council and Amey Plc have announced that there will be only minor changes to recycling and waste collections over the Christmas period.

Collection crews will be out and about over the festive season and residents will have their waste collected as usual unless their collection is due on Boxing Day. Bin tags detailing the collections have already been attached to bins in the district.

Refuse and kerbside box collections due on December 26 will be brought forward to Saturday 24 December. Medical waste collections due on December 26 will also take place on the 24 December.

In order to focus attention on collecting wrapping paper, present packaging, glass and tins, foil and all household plastics (apart from thin film), the Council will once again be suspending garden greens collections from Monday  19th  December,  with collections restarting the week beginning Monday 16th January.

All recycling and refuse should be left at the boundary of your property by 7am on collection day.  Most extra waste at this time of year can be recycled.

Additional recycling, apart from glass, that does not fit into the boxes provided can be left out for collection in separate plastic bags.  Any extra glass should be left in the plastic box to protect against breakages. When green waste collections start again (week commencing 16 January) real Christmas trees (less than 6ft tall with a trunk of less than 4 inches thick) can also be left out for collection. Decorations should be removed.
