Plans for waste and recycling collections over the Christmas and New Year have been announced by Birmingham City Council.
There are no collections on Boxing Day / Monday 26 December 2022. Those due general waste collection have their next collection scheduled for Monday 2 January and recycling on Monday 9 January 2023.
There will be collections of recycling only on Tuesday 27 December 2022, which is a Bank Holiday. General waste collection on this day have their next collection scheduled for Tuesday 3 January 2023.
All over days over the festive period, including Bank Holiday Monday 2 January 2023 will be collected as usual.
The Council expect additional waste created during this time. Reasonable amounts of “side waste” will be taken over the Christmas and new year period (2-3 sacks). Anyone with extra cardboard is asked to bundle it with string and place next to their recycling bin on their next scheduled collection day – the bundle must not be any taller or wider than the bin itself.
For those who do not wish to wait, the city’s network of four Household Recycling Centres will be open every day across the festive period, apart from Christmas Day and Boxing Day. Visits must be booked in advance.
