Thursday, December 26, collections will be on Saturday, December 28;
Friday, December 27, collections will be on Sunday, December 29;

Wednesday, January 1, collections will be on Thursday, January 2;
Thursday, January 2, collections will be on Friday, January 3;
Friday, January 3, collections will be on Saturday, January 4.
The above arrangements will also apply to trade waste collections.
Residents are also reminded that the Household Waste Recycling Centre in Burn Road will be open 8am-4.30pm every day, except Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.
