No change to waste collections during Easter
Release date: 10 March 2016
Cotswold District Council is reminding residents that refuse and recycling collections due on Good Friday (25 March) and Easter Monday (28 March) will be taking place as usual.
Councillor Sue Coakley, Cabinet Member for the Health, Environment and Communities at CDC, said: ‘Most residents are aware that we will only make changes to Christmas collection schedules this year, but it is always useful to remind the public that it is ‘business as usual’ on other public holidays. In other words, crews from our waste service provider Ubico Ltd will be working normal hours during the Easter break and will also make collections on the two Bank Holiday Mondays in May (2 and 30 May) and on August Bank Holiday Monday (29 August).”
She added: “Easter celebrations always generate a lot of additional waste and we are encouraging everyone to recycle as much as possible, including Easter egg and other food and drink packaging. Ubico collect recycling at the kerbside every fortnight, and recycling ‘bring banks’ are also available across the District.”
