Residents in Brightlingsea are reminded that their refuse and recycling will be collected a day later than normal next week due to the Bank Holiday.

Those whose collection is on a Monday will be collected on Tuesday; Tuesday’s collection will be on Wednesday and so on throughout the week.

Teams from Tendring District Council’s (TDC) waste and recycling contractors Veolia Environmental Services will carry out the Friday collections on Saturday June 7 – completing the week’s rounds.

Residents are asked not to put their refuse and recycling out earlier than is necessary, but to ensure it is placed at the boundary of their property by 7am on the revised collection day.

Local recycling centres will be open from 9am-5pm as normal on the Bank Holiday Monday.

Collections return to normal the week commencing June 9.
