Christmas Bin Collections

Mon, 27 Nov 2017 11:36 by Samantha Hosking

CORRECTION - Please note garden waste collection will start again week commencing Monday, 8 January or Monday, 15 January 2018

Householders in South Northamptonshire should make sure they put their bins out on time in the build-up to Christmas as the Boxing Day collections will be moved to the following Saturday. More »

Any household which is due to have a collection on Tuesday, 26 December should put their bins out on Saturday, 30 December instead.

Cllr Dermot Bambridge, South Northamptonshire Council's portfolio holder for environmental services, said: "We've escaped any changes to Christmas bin collections for a number of years, but Bank Holiday dates will have an impact on services this year.

"Thanks to residents we have one of the best recycling rates in the country, but it can be challenging for households, especially around Christmas, so we will be sympathetic to anyone having problems.

"But if households can keep on top of their recycling in the build-up to Christmas, it will make it easier when the annual peak in volume of waste and recycling arrives."

Reminders of the change in collection dates will be attached to the bins belonging to affected households on Tuesday, 12 December.

Collections on other days will not be affected by the Bank Holidays and residents should put their bins out on their normal day.

However, due to the rise in volume, collection crews may arrive at different times and householders should ensure their bins are out by 7am.

As normal, garden waste collections will be suspended for two weeks from Monday, 25 December before starting again the week commencing Monday, 8 January or Monday, 18 January 2018 depending on where you live in the district.

When garden waste collections resume residents are reminded they can put real Christmas trees out for collection in or next to their green bin, making sure all decorations are removed.

Bulky waste collections and deliveries will also be suspended for one week from Monday, 25 December, starting again in the first week of January 2018.

In Brackley, service X91 will serve Market Place, Tesco, Buckingham Road, Pavillons Way, Halse Road, Northampton Road and Poppyfields Way –replacing service BB1 which is withdrawn.

Passengers wishing to travel to Northampton from Poppyfields Way, Halse Road, Pavillons Way and Buckingham Road should board the X91 towards Brackley, which will then become service 88 (on most journeys) without needing to change buses in Brackley Market Place.Through fares will be available.

Service 88 will continue to provide peak hour journeys to Northampton, whilst service X91 will introduce a new peak hour service to Milton Keynes. Furthermore, CountyConnectwill continue to provide a bookable service to Brackley and Towcester throughout the day.

Journey time from Burcote Road to Milton Keynes is as little as 26 minutes.

Service X88

We have been informed that Stagecoach service X88, which currently provides one additional journey per day between Brackley and Northampton, will be withdrawn from the same date.This means that the 0930 bus from Brackley, Whittlebury and Syresham to Northampton will no longer operate, nor will the 1403 return journey from Northampton. However both villages will continue to be served by County Connect.
