2015 Christmas and New Year waste and recycling collection changes

There will be no collections on 25 December, 26 December and 1 January.
Garden waste collections will be suspended from Friday 25 December and restart on Saturday 9 January.

You can check your revised waste and recycling collection dates and print off your waste calendar at: www.wiltshire.gov.uk/waste

If you have paid to have your garden waste collected at home you can leave your real Christmas tree alongside your garden waste bin for collection between 9 and 31 January only. Alternatively they can be recycled at any of Wiltshire’s 11 household recycling centres.


Household recycling centre opening hours
All household recycling centres will be closed from 1pm on 24 December, and also all day on 25 December, 26 December and 1 January. At all other times the centres are open during their revised normal opening hours, 10am – 4pm, five days per week.
Please check when your local household recycling centre is open before travelling. You can check the opening times at http://www.wiltshire.gov.uk/rubbish-and-recycling or on 0300 456 0102.
