There will be no changes to bin collections in County Durham during the Easter Bank Holiday weeks – weeks starting Monday, 26 March and Monday, 2 April.
This includes refuse and recycling as well as garden waste collections, for those who have signed up to the scheme.
Households who have collections on a Friday are therefore reminded to still put their bins out on Good Friday (30 March).
Residents are also advised to put their bins out for collection by 7am on their normal collection day.
Those who are unsure of their collection days can find out by entering their house number and postcode into the ‘My Durham’ section at www.durham.gov.uk.
To subscribe to the garden waste scheme, visit www.durham.gov.uk/gardenwaste or call 03000 260 000 during office hours.
Residents can ‘Save time and do it online’ if they wish to report a missed bin collection or order replacement bins. Simply register an account at www.durham.gov.uk/doitonline. Accounts can be accessed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
