New Year (Thursday, 31 December and Friday, 1 January)

Black bin, recycling and food waste collections will take place as normal.

Black bins – Over Christmas and New Year, black bins will continue to be collected as normal on their fortnightly cycle. Please make sure you recycle as much as possible as excess side waste and bins with raised lids will not be collected.

Brown bins – From 21 December until Monday, 18 January 2015 brown bin collections will be suspended for households in Daventry District. This will enable crews to focus on collecting extra recycling. Please refer to your collections calendar as to when your brown bin will be collected next.

Recycling boxes and food bins – these will continue to be collected weekly for all properties on their scheduled collection day. There are alternative recycling arrangements for households scheduled for a Christmas Day collection (Friday 25 December ).

Extra recycling

  • Large cardboard will be collected from Boxing Day (26 December) until Saturday, 9 January inclusive.
  • If you have large cardboard and it won’t fit in your recycling box, please flatten it as much as possible and place next to your boxes on your collection day. Please do not place it inside another cardboard box.
  • You can also put out other extra recycling for collection over Christmas.
    If you have more recycling than your boxes can hold, please continue to sort your items and place them into clear or white bags next to your boxes (not black or green sacks)
  • Real Christmas trees – Christmas trees will only be collected when garden waste collections resume district-wide from 18 January, 2016. Please put your tree out next to your brown bin on your scheduled collection day from this date, or alternatively take it to your local household waste recycling centre.

Parish Council Appeal

Castle Road, Cherwell Terrace, Percy Road & Sidney Road

An appeal on refuse collection & parking from the Parish Council…..

“Finding a suitable on-street parking place becomes increasingly more difficult in our crowded streets. From time to time, refuse & recycling crews are prevented from collecting in Castle Road, Cherwell Terrace, Percy Road and Sidney Road due to parking that blocks the road for the collection trucks.

“Can all residents please take care when parking to allow full access for all highway users and let your visitors know too, especially on Wednesday nights and Thursdays.

“Thank you.

“Your Parish Council.”
