Easter bin collections

COUNCIL chiefs have advised householders about changes to bin collections over Easter.

Scheduled bin collections run by Durham County Council will take place as normal on Good Friday.

But in the week starting Monday, April 9, collections will be one day later than normal in the Sedgefield area due to the Bank Holiday on Easter Monday.

The council is in the process of introducing alternate weekly collections of rubbish, recycling and more efficient collection routes across the county.

Residents in these areas should check their collection calendar for specific collection days for their property.

Bins should be left out for collection by 7am on collection day.

For details of your specific collection days, call 03000 261000.
