Bin collection dates will change over Christmas and New Year.

Hull’s Christmas bin collection dates announced 

Hull City Council’s waste team is reminding residents to check their bin collection days over the festive period. 

The bank holidays over Christmas and New Year mean there will be changes to the usual collection schedule. 

Hull residents can check their collection days at any time via the online bin collection (Household collections – Hull ) day checker or on the 2023-24 calendars included in the recycling packs sent to every household in the city. 

Councillor Julia Conner, Portfolio Holder for Environment, said: “Bin collections over Christmas and New Year are slightly different, so to ensure your bins are emptied, everyone should check their calendars to make sure they put their bins out on the right days.” 

The changes to the collection schedule are as follows: 

Usual collection date Revised collection date 
Tuesday 26 December Wednesday 27 December 
Wednesday 27 December Thursday 28 December 
Thursday 28 December Friday 29 December  
Friday 29 December Saturday 30 December 

The Council is also encouraging people to recycle properly over the festive period, a time when household waste increases by about a third. 

Cllr Conner added: “With all the extra packaging from presents, cards, wrapping paper and food, we all produce a lot more household waste over the festive period. 

“Most of this can be recycled, so this Christmas we are asking everyone to take extra care to make sure their waste goes in the right bin.”

Any excess waste can be taken to one of the city’s three household waste and recycling centres, where many unwanted items can also be donated for sale in Reuse shops. 

Hull’s household waste and recycling centres will be closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day, and will be open from 10am to 4pm on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve. 

At all other times, the centres are open from 10am to 5pm, seven days a week.
