Updates to Christmas bin collections

Published December 19, 2022 9.23am

Residents across County Durham are reminded of some changes to bin collections over Christmas and New Year.

Our collections will take place as normal up to and including Friday 23 December.

From Tuesday 27 December to Friday 30 December, collections will take place one day later than normal, starting from Wednesday 28 December to Saturday 31 December.

Normal collections will resume from Tuesday 3 January.

Check your collection dates 

Residents can check their collection dates online by entering their house number and postcode into My Durham.

Meanwhile, there will be no large waste (bulky) collections between Christmas Eve and Monday 2 January.

Household Waste Recycling Centres 

Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs) across the county will be open as normal over the festive period, except for Christmas Day and New Year's Day.

Members of the public are encouraged to check Recycling centres (tips) before visiting a recycling centre, particularly in case of bad weather. The website includes further information about locations and opening hours.

Real Christmas tree collections will also be available in the New Year. Residents can book a free collection online at Christmas tree collections or calling 03000 26 0000 up to Friday 6 January.

Residents can keep up to date with any changes to our services by following DCC on Twitter or DCC on Facebook.
