Changes to bin collections over the festive period

Posted on 11 Dec 2019

Residents are being reminded to check their bin collection arrangements for over the festive period.

That’s because the Christmas and New Year bank holidays will bring changes to some waste and recycling collection services across the area.

However, only those households whose bin collections fall on a Wednesday or Thursday on the mainland and Cumbrae, or a Wednesday or Friday on Arran, will be affected. For all other households, the collection service will continue on the normal days – although the actual time of collections may vary, particularly if adverse weather affects the area.

The revised timetable for mainland and Cumbrae over the festive period is:

Usual Collection Date

Revised Collection Date

Wednesday 25 December 2019

Saturday 21 December 2019

Thursday 26 December 2019

Sunday 22 December 2019

Wednesday 1 January 2020

Saturday 28 December 2019

Thursday 2 January 2020

Additionally, North Ayrshire’s Household Waste Recycling Centres will be closed on 25and 26 December and 1 and 2 January.  They will open as normal out with these dates.

Special uplifts will stop on Friday 20 December 2019 and can be requested again week commencing Monday 6 January 2020.

Large flat packed cardboard boxes can be placed next to your blue bin on the day of your collection over the festive period.  Residents are reminded that the blue bin should now only be used for recycling paper, card and cardboard.  Glass, cans, plastics and cartons should only go into your purple bin only.

The team will also collect real Christmas trees that are in sections of five feet or less.  Please refer to your collection calendar for specified uplift dates.
