Bank holiday refuse and recycling collections

Household refuse and recycling collections in Pendle remain as normal on all bank holidays, with the exception of Christmas and New Year.

Christmas 2016

There will be no refuse or recycling collections on 26, 27 and 30 December.

If your usual collection day falls on:

  • Monday 26 December your collection will be Wednesday 28 December
  • Tuesday 27 December your collection day will be Thursday 29 December
  • Friday 30 December your collection day will be Monday 2 January

Please note that we will be collecting as normal on Monday 2 January. However, the Contact Centre is closed until Tuesday 3, so it's best to report any problems with your collections online. Full Council office Christmas opening hours are here.

Remember to put your stuff out by 7.30am! Remind yourself about what recycling goes in which bin.

Garden Waste Subscriptions

There will be no garden waste collections for two weeks from 26 December 2016 until 8 January 2017. Collections will start again from week beginning 9th January 2017 on your normal collection day.

Garden waste rounds go back to normal as from Monday 23rd January 2017. Any Christmas trees presented from this date will be collected with residual waste or need to be cut up and placed in (subscription paid) garden bins.

Christmas Trees

Unwanted real trees will be collected for recycling for two weeks from Monday 9 January to Friday 20 January. Just  put them out on your recycling/garden waste day, or in rural zones this will be garden/refuse day. Please remove all decorations. This is free of charge to all households, not just garden waste subscribers.
Trees can also be taken to Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs) in Barnoldswick and Burnley and put in the Green Waste skip.

Other bank holidays

Your bins and recycling will be collected on the usual days over the Easter, Spring and Summer Bank and May Day holidays.

In the event of severe winter weather, please only put out your refuse and recycling bins/boxes when absolutely necessary, secure loose paper and card and bring in your bins as soon as they're emptied.

In the event of heavy snow, collections may be disrupted. You can keep up to date with any changes via Twitter or Facebook.
