Bedford Borough Council has announced changes to their bin collection schedule over the Christmas and New Year period.

The seasonal changes will be in place from Saturday 24 December, Christmas Eve, when an early collection is scheduled for certain parts of the Borough. Collections will return to normal on Monday 9 January 2023.

The Council is also encouraging residents to recycle more of their waste over Christmas by squashing items, such as cardboard boxes, meaning there is room in bins to recycle over the festive period.

Councillor Charles Royden, Portfolio Holder for Environment, sad: “Be sure to check the updated schedule by visiting our website to make sure you don’t miss a bin collection over the Christmas holidays.

“We always see an increase in household waste over the festive period so please be sure to recycle as much as you can. Additional recycling can be placed in a clear sack or cardboard box and placed next to your recycling bin.”

The bin collection schedule for 2023 has also now been published on Bedford Borough Council’s website.
