May Bank Holiday Bin Days

Categories: East Sheen,East Sheen News,Environment

May Bank holiday recycling and waste collection will be one day later than usual.

Following the May Bank Holiday on Monday 3 May, Richmond Council will carry out general waste, food waste, garden waste and recycling collections for domestic properties one day later than usual, for one week. 

For example, Monday collections will take place on Tuesday, Tuesday collections on Saturday, etc. There will be no change for those receiving commercial waste and recycling collection services.

Following the Bank Holiday: 

  • There will be no collections for bulky waste available on Monday, 3 May 
  • There will be no change for those receiving commercial waste and recycling collection services.

Normal domestic collection schedules for all waste will resume a week later on Monday 10 May. 

Residents are asked to ensure their recycling and refuse is available for collection by 6am on collection day at the boundary of their property beside the entrance, i.e. where their front garden or drive meets the pavement.

To reduce issues with street litter and trip hazards, only households without front gardens, drives or equivalent are permitted to present recycling and refuse on the pavement and should only do this after 8pm on the day before collection.   

The Household Waste and Recycling Centre at Townmead Road will be open over the bank holiday but pre-booking is essential. You can book a free slot here

For all enquiries about collections, please telephone 020 8891 1411. Further information is available here
