Do you know when your bins are being emptied over Christmas and New Year?

Refuse, recycling, food and garden waste collections will change for Tewkesbury Borough residents over Christmas and the New Year.  

This year, collections scheduled for Monday, 25 December will take place two days early - on Saturday, 23 December.  

From Tuesday, 26 December until Friday, 5 January, residents will need to put their bins out one day later than normal. 

The full list of rescheduled dates can be read below. Alternatively, residents can check their collection dates by entering their postcode at

Garden waste collections will pause on Friday, 22 December 2023 and start again on Monday, 8 January 2024. This will allow our collection crews to manage the extra rubbish that gets thrown out in January. 

Tewkesbury Borough Council’s Lead member for clean and green environment, Councillor Sarah Hands, said: "Please make sure you don’t miss any waste collections over Christmas and New Year by checking these revised dates. 

"With all the extra refuse we inevitably create at this time of year, it’s vital we recycle all the appropriate items. Check our website if you're not sure whether something can be recycled or not.  

"Gloucestershire Recycles’ Waste Wizard will tell you the various ways you can make use of unwanted household items, whether it's repairing, recycling or reusing them. You can find out more by visiting  

"I'm sure I speak for us all when I say a big thank you to our collection crews for their extra hard work over the Christmas period."
