WASTE & RECYCLING COLLECTIONS FOR CHRISTMAS & NEW YEAR 2018

Release Date: 
Wednesday, December 12, 2018 - 15:30

Due to Christmas and Boxing Day falling mid-week this year, Corby Borough Council is making some changes to bin collections over the Christmas period.

Due to the low usage of green waste collection over the festive holiday period and to increase efficiency of refuse, recycling and food waste collection, Corby’s green waste collections for the week commencing Monday 24th December 2018 will be cancelled for one week only. The green waste collections will then resume as normal from week commencing Monday 7th January 2019.

There will also be slight changes to the refuse, recycling and food waste collection days over the festive holiday period as follows:
