Christmas bin collections

News | Community

Residents will be able to dispose of their Christmas waste and recyclables at eight additional sites over the Christmas period.


On Saturday 29 December, a refuse and recycling vehicle will collect household waste and card, plastic bottles and other recyclable materials from the Orton Centre car park in Orton Goldhay, Peterborough, between 8 am and 9.30 am.

The vehicles will then visit the Copeland Centre in Bretton, Peterborough, between 10 am and 11.30 am; Hampton Court in Ravensthorpe, Peterborough, from 12 noon to 1.30 pm; and the Pyramid Centre car park in North Bretton, Peterborough, from 2 pm to 3.30 pm.

They will also make collections on Saturday 5 January 2008 from the car park in Lawson Avenue car park, Stanground, Peterborough, from 8 am to 9.30 am; Park Lane car park in Eastfield, Peterborough, from 10 am to 11.30 am; Christ Church car park, Dogsthorpe, Peterborough, from 12 noon to 1.30 pm; and the Rainbow Centre, Werrington, Peterborough, from 2 pm to 3.30pm.

Householders are also reminded that refuse and recycling dates over the festive period will change for most households. Residents who would have had a service on Monday 24 December will instead have their bins collected two days earlier on Saturday 22 December, while those who would have normally had their bins collected on Tuesday 25 December will instead have a service on Monday 24 December. The remaining collections during Christmas week will be collected a day later than usual.

Collections on Monday 31 December will remain unchanged, while collections for the rest of the week will be picked-up a day later than usual. This will culminate with collections which would have normally taken place on Friday 4 January 2008 being collected on Saturday 5 January 2008.

In addition, residents are reminded that brown bin collections will be suspended from Friday 21 December until Monday 21 January 2008.

Councillor David Sanders, Cabinet member for City Services at Peterborough City Council, said: “Three million tonnes of extra waste is produced over the Christmas holidays, which can end up at landfill sites. We want to encourage people to recycle as much of this waste as possible and also give them additional places they can dispose of it and other household rubbish.

“Most of the extra waste created during the festive period can be recycled and, while residents in Peterborough are some of the greenest in the UK, it’s important we continue to do our bit for the environment this Christmas.”

Card, paper, television guides, newspapers, plastic bottles, aluminium and tin cans, as well as juice and milk cartons, can be deposited in green bins for recycling. Glass bottles and jars should be taken to the nearest bottle bank of which there are more than 30 across the city.
