Earlier bin collections to help our crews beat the heat

Aug 10, 2022 | News

Cornwall Council have advised:

Due to the hot weather, rubbish, recycling and garden waste collections will be taking place earlier in some parts of Cornwall tomorrow (Thursday 11.08.22 ) and Friday to help keep our crews safe.

The earlier collections will be taking place in North, Mid and East Cornwall where the Met Office Amber heat warning is in place. However, we advise everyone due to have rubbish, recycling or garden waste collections on Thursday 11 and Friday 12 August to put it out for collection by 6am, to ensure it is collected.

If you’re putting it out the night before, make sure it’s covered so the gulls and other wildlife can’t get to it.

At the moment, collections are due to go back to their usual time on Monday 15 August.
