Don't forget! Bin collection changes this weekend in Amber Valley

Posted: Tue, 18 Dec 2018 11:33 by Jackie Clements

Don't forget your bin collection day changes this weekend!

The next date, Monday 31st will see recycling collected as normal.

If your bin day is different or you're unsure, Amber Valley Borough Council has all the information listed on their website here https://www.ambervalley.gov.uk/rubbish-waste-and-recycling/collections-over-christmas-and-adverse-weather/ - simply enter your postcode to find out all your collection dates and which bin you should put out.
