WILTSHIRE COUNCIL Christmas waste and recycling collections and HOUSEHOLD RECYCLING CENTRE (HRC) opening times

Waste and recycling collection dates will not change over the Christmas and New Year period, as waste collection crews will be working as normal on Bank Holidays Monday 27, Tuesday 28 December 2021, and Monday 3 January 2022.

Garden waste collections will stop for two weeks over this period. The last collections will take place on Friday 24 December and they will restart on Monday 10 January 2022.

Residents can check their waste, recycling and garden waste collection online at Waste collection calendar.

Household recycling centre (HRC) opening times and dates will change over the Christmas and New Year period and residents are advised to check online before visiting an HRC at Household recycling centres (HRCs). HRCs that normally open on Fridays will be open on Christmas Eve, 24 December from 10am but will close at 1pm. All HRCs will be closed on Saturday 25, Sunday 26 December and Saturday 1 January 2022. Other than on these dates, the centres will open as normal on their specified opening days.

In addition to the everyday items people tend to recycle in their blue lidded bin and black box, people can add items including wrapping paper, providing it scrunches into a ball; cardboard packaging; plastic sweet tubs (up to 5 litres); mince pie foil cases; drinks cans; glass bottles; and Christmas cards without glitter.

It is important that people do not place batteries or electrical items into any of their bins. These items can cause fires in collection vehicles or at waste processing and sorting facilities. These should be disposed of at HRCs instead.

Households with extra recyclable materials such as cans, cardboard and paper can place these in suitable alternative containers alongside their bin for collection. Flatten cardboard and wash and squash plastic bottles and cartons and put the lids back on, as this will help make more room in your blue-lidded bin.

People who pay to have their garden waste collected can put their real Christmas tree alongside their garden waste bin on their first collection in January. Crews will collect your tree for composting, or you can support local charities by paying a small donation to have your tree collected via the JustHelping charity Christmas tree collection scheme.
