Daventry District Council's offices will be closed from Christmas Day until they reopen on Monday 4 January 2021.

Essential services, such as waste and recycling collections and street cleaning will continue over the festive period, and there will also continue to be arrangements in place in the event of an emergency.

Find out more below:

Waste and recycling collections

Collections will continue as usual over the Christmas and New Year period, except for Christmas Day and New Year’s Day:

  • If your collection is due on Christmas Day (Friday, 25 December) it will take place on Sunday, 27 December
  • If your collection is due on New Year’s Day (Friday, 1 January) it will take place the following day on Saturday, 2 January

Extra recycling collection

During the week beginning Monday 28 December, all households will get an extra collection of their blue-lidded bin on their usual collection day. Extra recycling will also be collected if it cannot fit into the blue-lidded bin. Please put these items in clear or white bags and place them next to your bin.

Food waste collections

Food waste bins will continue to be collected on their usual weekly schedule. Please remember you can recycle leftover raw and cooked foods, including veg peelings, egg shells, out-of-date food, plate scrapings, solid fats, meat and fish bones. Please do not put any liquids in the caddy.

Garden waste collections

There will a short break in collections during the week beginning 28 December, to allow crews to focus on the extra seasonal recycling.

General waste collections

Black bins containing general waste will continue to be collected as normal on their three-weekly cycle. Please make sure you recycle as much as possible and make use of the extra blue-lidded recycling bin collection, as bins with raised lids or bags of rubbish left next to your bin will not be collected.

Real Christmas trees

If you have a real Christmas tree you can put it out for collection in the week beginning Monday 11 January. It should be placed next to your bins on your normal collection day. Those subscribed to the garden waste service can cut the tree up and place it in their garden waste bins if they prefer.

There are no communal collection points for real Christmas trees, but they can be taken to your local household waste recycling centre: https://www.daventrydc.gov.uk/living/waste-and-recycling/where-is-the-nearest-recycling-centre/
