New waste and recycling calendars will help people across North Norfolk understand how their bin collection dates will be affected by public holidays such as Christmas, New Year’s Day and Easter.
Every year North Norfolk District Council’s collection dates over the Christmas period and other public holidays differ slightly, sometimes taking place a day or two earlier or later than expected.
The new calendars show when wheelie bins will be collected over the next 12 months, from this December through to November 2017.
Each calendar is specific to the usual day of collection, so people with Monday collections will receive different calendars to those with Tuesday collections and so on.
The calendars show any changes to collections as a result of public holidays by showing the actual collection date highlighted in yellow. If the dates haven’t changed they will appear in white. On the reverse side it illustrates what can go in the green recycling bin. Calendars will be hung on wheelie bins following emptying.
Delivery of the new calendars began last week and will continue this week, taking place on collection day.
Cllr Angie Fitch-Tillett Cabinet Member for Environmental Services said: “The calendars are being delivered to everyone across the district with a wheelie bin. We hope they will help people organise in advance when to put bins out for collection especially over Bank Holidays.
“It’s a really good idea to keep the calendar somewhere safe that you can see easily as a reminder of collection dates. I always keep mine on the kitchen pinboard so I don’t forget.”
New garden waste calendars are also being delivered over the next two weeks across the District and will be left under the garden waste bin lid or posted through residents’ doors if their bin has not been left out.
