Christmas Bin Collection Changes Explained

By Published December 15, 2017

MIDDLESBROUGH residents are being advised their bin collections will take place one day late during Christmas week.

Christmas Day 2017 falls on a Monday when no bins are collected in the town.

This means that those residents who have their bins collected on a Tuesday will have them collected a day later on Wednesday, December 27 owing to the Boxing Day bank holiday.

The knock-on effect will continue throughout the week with collections finishing on Saturday, December 30.

As New Year’s Day also falls on a Monday the collections will be back to normal that week.
