Easter Waste and Recycling Collections

Collection crews will be working on Good Friday and waste will be collected as normal that day. However, as a result of the Easter Monday bank holiday, collections due to be made from Monday 28 March will be made a day later than normal. For example, collections that would normally be made on Monday will instead be made on Tuesday, continuing like this throughout the week with collections that would normally be made on Friday will be made on Saturday.

Collections will return to normal on Monday 4 April. Any residents unsure about which day they should put out their waste or recycling are asked to check their collection calendar or check out their bin day on line using the online collection day finder at  http://www.telford.gov.uk/recycling 

Sarah Maythorne, Community Liaison Officer for Veolia said: “We want to remind people that our collection crews will be coming one day later than normal following the Easter weekend. If anyone is unsure which day to put their bins or blue bag out, we ask them to check the collection calendar which will have been delivered to their house.

“We anticipate that a great deal of cardboard and paper from Easter egg boxes and cards will be produced. As well as reminding people about changes to their collection days we want to encourage them to recycle as much as they can, rather than throwing it in the red top bin.”
