ABERDEENSHIRE Council are reminding residents as this year Christmas and New Year’s Day both fall on a Tuesday, refuse and recycling collections usually done on Tuesday will be made the following Saturday.
• The collection due on Christmas Day will now be Saturday, December 29, 2012.
• The collection due on New Year’s Day will now be Saturday, January 5, 2013.
Please remember to put your refuse and recycling out early to ensure it is collected. All other collections over the festive period will take place on the usual days.
All Household Waste and Recycling Centres (HWRCs) will be closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year’s Day and January 2. They will open on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve from 9am to 4pm (which means they close an hour earlier than usual in some cases). Alford and Insch HWRCs will open on Thursday, December 27, and Thursday, January 3 January. Otherwise all will be open as usual. Extra bags can be put out if a refuse collection is missed due to bad weather.
