Garbage collection will continue over the holidays, however times may vary

Over the Easter Bank Holiday many Brits are on a well-deserved break, meaning some services are running at reduced times.

One of the things that will have a reduced schedule is public services like garbage collection.

Some sectors, including supermarkets, will work at different times to give workers more time to celebrate Easter with their families.

However, other communities have no influence on the Easter holiday schedule – and it is difficult to keep track.

So how do you know when the collection dates for your trash and recycling are at Easter? Here’s everything you need to know.

This is how you can find the pick-up times for the garbage can







Check your municipality’s website for local garbage collection times

Your local garbage collection time depends on where in the country you are located. Some local authorities have intermittent collection times while others stay the same.

The best way to find out when your rubbish bins will be picked up is to contact your municipality.

If you can’t find any information on your local government website, the easiest way is to enter your zip code in the Gov.uk rubbish collection day Characteristic.

Alternatively, many councils have notified their residents via social media sites. Check their Twitter and Facebook pages to see if they have any new updates.

Many communities will continue to operate normally. For example Ipswich and East Suffolk and certain London boroughs such as Camden.

Meanwhile, other services have paused, possibly delaying collections by a day or two.

For example, West Suffolk rubbish collections will be a day late in Babergh and Mid Suffolk, meaning rubbish collections that would normally take place on Friday 15 April will be collected on Saturday 16 April instead.

If your blue and brown bins, including paper, are normally collected on a Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday in East Staffordshire, they will be collected as normal.

However, some addresses are different, so it’s best to check the municipality’s website.
