Coventry City Council is reminding residents that bins will be emptied over the week between Christmas and New Year, with no break in service.
Cllr Jayne Innes, Coventry City Council's Cabinet Member for City Services, said:
“Our crews have been working hard to make sure that they catch up following the snow last week. And they will be working between Christmas and New Year – with collections taking place a day later than scheduled including Friday’s collection which will take place on Saturday 30 December.
“Christmas can mean people have extra waste and recycling, including lots of empty boxes and packaging so our crews will be out even though most of the Council shuts over the festive period. And this year because garden waste collections have been extended to all year round people will be able to cut up their real trees and put them in their brown lidded bin.
“It’s been a year of change for our bin crews and for local people and I’d like to thank everyone for making the new service work. Recycling rates are already well up and the new service will save us £1 million every year – cash we can invest in other front line services.”
Christmas week, collections will be as follows:
Bin calendars were delivered to every home in the city in September, but for anyone who wishes to check, www.coventry.gov.uk/bindays will confirm which day a collection will take place.
