Thurrock Council moves bin collections over Easter
BIN collections in Thurrock will be moved due to the Easter holidays.
The council will be working as normal in the run up to the holiday - collecting every day including Good Friday.
However, they will not be working on Easter Monday so collections will be put back one day meaning Friday’s collection will be done on Saturday, April 6.
On the post-Easter week and the week afterwards, beginning Monday, April 8, the council will take extra green or grey bin waste as long as it is put in ordinary bin bags beside the bins, and extra dry recycling from the blue bin if put in the special blue recycling bags.
The recycling bags will be available - free of charge – from superstores, village stores, libraries and the South Ockendon housing office.
Victoria Holloway, Thurrock Council’s portfolio holder for environment, said: “By negotiating normal working on Good Friday and Saturday working the week afterwards, disruption will be kept to a minimum.
“In addition, as the school holidays often generate extra waste – with families and friends visiting and spending more time at home - Thurrock Council is allowing the collection of properly bagged side waste for two weeks.
“This should ensure people’s waste is disposed of quickly and safely and Thurrock’s proud recycling record continues.”
