Uttlesford District Council announces waste collection plans for Easter weekend

WASTE collection plans have been announced for Easter weekend.

There will be no dry recycling or food waste collections in the district on Friday (March 29) due to the Bank Holiday.

Residents who were due to have their wheelie bins and food caddies emptied on Friday will instead have them collected the following day (Saturday March 30).

All collections next week will take place as scheduled.

To check your collection day, go to http://bins.uttlesford.gov.uk/ and enter your postcode.

The council’s garden waste service re-launched recently and anyone wishing to subscribe or renew do so. There is a one-off £20 bin charge for new subscribers and an annual £40 collection charge. You pay the appropriate percentage if you join part way through the year.

Residents in receipt of district council-administered benefits are eligible for a discount on the subscription charge.
