Local residents are being reminded that bin collections in Renfrewshire will change over the festive period, with no collections taking place on Christmas Day or New Year’s Day.

New collection calendars have been sent to every home in Renfrewshire advising of the change to the normal schedule, so all residents with a Saturday collection should be aware of their adjusted date.

Collections due on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day will take place one day later for blue and green bins and one day earlier for grey bins.

The last brown bin collection of the year will take place on 21 December 2022 and will resume on 5 January 2023.

Collections due on any other day over the festive period will take place as normal.

Councillor Michelle Campbell, Convener of Renfrewshire Council’s Infrastructure, Land and Environment Policy Board, said: “I want to thank all our collection teams for their work throughout the year, but in particular over the festive period. It’s hugely appreciated by everyone in Renfrewshire.

“Our teams will be working hard to ensure that all bins are uplifted so if you’re due a collection on Christmas Day or New Year’s Day, then please make sure you know to put out grey bins the day before and green or blue bins the day after.”
