As in previous years, there will be no rubbish and recycling collections on Christmas Day or Boxing Day.

Collections due on Christmas Day:

  • Rubbish due to be collected on Christmas Day will be collected Wednesday 1 January 2020.
  • Recycling due to be collected on Christmas Day will be collected Saturday 21 December 2019.
  • Garden waste due to be collected on Christmas Day will be collected Saturday 21 December 2019.

Collections due on Boxing Day:

  • Rubbish due to be collected on Boxing Day will be collected Thursday 2 January 2020.
  • Recycling due to be collected on Boxing Day will be collected Saturday 28 December 2019.
  • Garden waste due to be collected on Boxing Day will be collected Saturday 28 December 2019.

We will collect your waste and recycling as usual if your collection is due on any other day of the week over the Christmas period. It might be that the time of collection is earlier or later than usual, but as long as you have your bins and recycling (and garden waste if you subscribe to this service) out by 7am, we'll collect it.

Waste and recycling collections will then continue as normal from (and including) New Year's Day.

These details will be posted to residents of Cornwall as part of their collection calendar. Further information is available at www.cornwall.gov.uk/christmas. 

We will also collect real Christmas trees (under 6ft) for composting on the weeks beginning 6 January and 13 January 2020. We will collect trees on the alternate week to your recycling collection. Please place your tree out for collection beside your rubbish.

Remember, your local Household Waste and Recycling Centre is open every day from 9.00 to 16.00, except on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day.

If you have any questions, please contact our Waste and Recycling team on 0300 1234 141
