Bin collections start from 5.30am on Monday and Tuesday

14/07/22 - Bin collections across Broxtowe will start from 5.30am on Monday July 18 and Tuesday July 19, instead of their usual 6.30am start times to reduce the Council’s Refuse team’s exposure to the forecast extreme weather conditions.

Residents in the Borough should therefore ensure their bins scheduled for collection on either day are placed on the edge of their properties before 5.30am on these days to ensure they are collected.

It follows an amber weather warning on both days across the region that could see temperatures reach 34o c.

The earlier starts will help the teams to get more bins emptied in the morning before the temperatures peak later in the day and is in line with Health and Safety Executive (HSE) advice for outdoor working.

The Council would like to thank residents for their support.
