Changes to bin collections for the Easter holidays

Published on 21 March 2016

BIN collections for some city residents will change this week due to the Easter holidays.

People who normally get their bins and orange bags collected on a Friday will not have a collection on Good Friday (25 March). Instead, their next collection will be on Friday 1 April.

There are no changes to Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday collections.

Bins and orange bags need to be presented by 7am on the day of collection.

The household waste recycling centres at Gypsum Close (off Lewisher Road) and Freemen's Common (on Islington Street) will be open as usual over the Easter holidays.

Householders are also reminded that you can use your orange bags or communal recycling bins to recycle plastic packaging, cardboard and Easter egg boxes. To see a full list of what can and can't be recycled, visit leicester.gov.uk/orangebags

Customers of the city’s garden waste service should note that bank holidays do not affect collections. To download a copy of your collection calendar, visit leicester.gov.uk/gardenwaste
