Rubbish and recycling collections - all you need to know

  • All households will get a rubbish collection next week (week commencing 15 Dec) so all rubbish bins will be emptied in the run up to Christmas.  Recycling collections will continue as normal next week.
  • There will be NO rubbish or recycling collections during Christmas week (22 to 26 December)
  • All households will get a rubbish collection the week after Christmas (week commencing 29 Dec) so all rubbish bins will be emptied.  Recycling collections will continue as normal. There will be NO rubbish or recycling collections on Thursday 1 January.  Collections of rubbish missed this day will happen on Saturday 3 January instead, but there will be no recycling pick up.

Residents who put out their own bins will need to make sure they’re out by 7am, as collection times can vary.  

All households have been delivered a new collection calendar and this festive information is shown within this. 

If anyone needs to check festive collection dates please use the online tool on our website (link below). 

If needed, the individual calendar can be printed from the ‘results’ page.  https://www.york.gov.uk/DoItOnline/Pages/NeighbourhoodServices/RefusePostcodeLookup.aspx
