Christmas and New Year Waste Collection Changes

Waste and recycling collection dates in the Cotswolds have been updated for the holiday season.
Cotswold District Council’s waste and recycling collection service provider, Ubico Ltd, will be making normal collections up to and including Thursday 24 December. Crews will NOT be working on Friday 25 December and Friday 1 January.

As a consequence, there will be changes in collection days until the normal schedule resumes on Monday 18 January 2021.

The collection days will change as follows: (please note that crews will be working on two Saturdays to catch up – 9 and 16 January 2021)

They will be allowing side waste for every household’s first full collection after Christmas Day; residents will be able to leave out additional amounts of non-recyclable waste in bin liners next to their grey wheeled bin/beige refuse bags.

The collection schedule will return to normal on the week beginning Monday 18 January 2021.

The Household Recycling Centres are open 10 am to 4 pm and each site is closed one day per week (Fosse Cross is closed Tuesdays).

Everyone visiting the Household Recycling centres is required to prebook their visit to gain access to these sites. Social distancing will be required on-site, and to minimise queues and waiting times the number of booking slots available will be limited.
