The usual bin collection service will be changing in Sheffield between December 21 and January 4. Alternative dates have been released by Veolia, who handle waste on behalf of Sheffield City Council, for when rubbish will be collected over the festive period.

If your bin was due to be collected on December 25, it will now be collected on December 21.

If your bin was due to be collected on December 26, it will now be collected on December 27.

If your bin was due to be collected on December 27, it will now be collected on December 28.

If your bin was due to be collected on January 1, it will now be collected on January 2.

If your bin was due to be collected on January 2, it will now be collected on January 3.

If your bin was due to be collected on January 3, it will now be collected on January 4.

All collections will return to your normal days after and including Monday January 6. 

Bins should be put out for collection on the pavement by 7am on collection day and taken back on to properties no later than 9am the following day.

Over the festive period it is likely that you will produce lots of extra waste, including wrapping paper, Christmas cards, boxes, catalogues, glass and plastic bottles, biscuit/chocolate tins and lots more.

You can place small amounts of extra paper and card, tied in a bundle no bigger than your bin, next to your blue bin for collection.

Between December 27 and January 23, Veolia will collect extra tins, cans and plastic bottles.

You can put them inside a tied carrier bag next to your brown bin. Any glass bottles or jars must be placed inside your brown bin, otherwise your extra recycling will not be collected.
