Check your Easter bin collection days
24 Mar 2020
West Suffolk residents are being asked to check their Easter bin days as some collections are being made up to two days early.
While we are currently emptying household waste and recycling, residents are asked to follow West Suffolk Council social media or check our website regularly for any further changes that might need to happen in response to Government instructions or Coronavirus. www.westsuffolk.gov.uk/coronavirus
Bank holiday collections can be checked in two ways. Leaflets are being delivered to all 80,000 West Suffolk households starting this week, including a calendar to keep and refer to.
There is also an online postcode checker
This year Good Friday falls on 10 April and as there will be no collections on that day, bins will be emptied early this week. In particular this means instead of Monday 6 April, bins due on that day will be collected on Saturday 4 April, two days early.
Easter Monday is 13 April and bins this week will all be one day late.
Please help any neighbours you think may not be able to get their bin out or put back again.
And please help bin crews to help you. Ensure your bin is by 6:30am on the day of collection and by parking considerately so we can get our bin lorries through.
Households with a member suffering virus symptoms are asked to place all used tissues and disposable cleaning cloths in a double wrapped bag and keep aside for 72 hours before putting it into the black bin.
