Bank holiday bin dates

BIN collections will be a day later than usual next week due to the Bank Holiday weekend.

Northumberland County Council has advised that all parts of the county will be affected, except the Berwick area.

In addition, residents of north and west Northumberland are reminded that there will be permanent changes to their collections from Monday, September 12.

For many householders this will mean a change of collection day and all residents are asked to put their bins out by 7am on the day.

The council says the review will improve efficiency and make collections more cost effective and environmentally friendly.

Leaflets have been sent out to advise of the changes and more information is available on the council’s website at www.northumberland.gov.uk
