Waste and recycling collection arrangements for the festive season in West Northants

The festive period can mean that households have more recycling and waste than any other time throughout the year.

WNC encourage all residents to ensure that all recycling is washed, crushed and disposed of properly so we can all do our bit to recycle this Christmas.

Downloadable bin calendars with information about waste and recycling arrangements each area of West Northants will be available from the Bins, Recycling and Waste pages of WNC website by the end of November.

But in the meantime, the main things to remember are:

  • Waste and recycling collection days in the South Northamptonshire and Northampton areas will not change over Christmas and New Year.
  • Garden waste collections will be suspended from 24 December until 6 January across West Northants.
  • Crews will collect real Christmas trees between 9 and 20 January.
  • Residents in the Daventry and South Northants areas should put real Christmas trees out on the day that garden waste is due to be collected in their area.
  • Please ensure any trees over 6ft tall are cut in half, so they will fit into the lorries safely.
  • You do not need a garden waste subscription to put out your real Christmas tree for collection.

Additional recycling can be put out in clear plastic bags or boxes alongside recycling bins and boxes, or can also be taken to the nearest Household Waste Recycling Centre.  These are open as usual throughout the festive period except for Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year’s Day, when they will be closed. Centres will also close early on Christmas Eve, at 2pm.  Find out more information about waste and recycling collections this Christmas on the WNC website.
