BIN collections are scheduled to run a day late across Northumberland over the Christmas and New Year holiday period.
All collections will be a day later than normal for the weeks beginning December 26 and January 2.
A Northumberland County Council review of bin collection routes earlier this year has enabled the authority to standardise arrangements for bank holidays across the county.
Services may still be disrupted by winter weather. Check details online at www.northumberland.gov.uk
