Will your Dustbins be emptied over Easter in the City

Leicester City Council announces that No changes to city waste collections this Easter and that all recycling and waste collections will take place on the normal collection day over the forthcoming Easter holiday.

There will be no changes to any collection days, including on Good Friday (19 April) when a special bank holiday collection will take place.

People should put out their bins and orange bags by 7am on the normal collection day.

Householders are also reminded that you can use your orange bags or communal recycling bins to recycle plastic packaging, foil, cardboard and Easter egg boxes.

The foil around chocolate eggs can be scrunched together into a larger ball of foil, which makes it easier for machinery to sort it for recycling.

The household waste recycling centres at Gypsum Close (off Lewisher Road) and Freemen's Common (on Islington Street) will be open as normal over the Easter holidays.

People who use the council's garden waste service should note that bank holidays do not affect collections.
