BIN COLLECTIONS will change over the Christmas period.

All waste and recycling collections scheduled for Wednesday 28, Thursday 29 and Friday 30 December will take place as normal.

However, there are some amends to collection dates scheduled on Tuesday 27 December.

Scheduled collections due to take place on this date have been adjusted as follows:

Grey bin collections due on Tuesday December 27 will instead take place on Wednesday December 28.

Blue/white sack collections due on Tuesday December 27 will take place on Thursday December 29.

Brown bin collections due on Tuesday December 27 will take place on Friday December 30.

This affects collections in the following areas:

Dodworth, Silkstone Common, Silkstone, Cawthorne, Hoylandswaine, Oxspring, Thurgoland, Penistone, Wilthorpe, Honeywell, Darton, Kexborough, Higham, Barugh Green and Gawber.

Following these changes, collections will revert back to the usual collection day.

The council says residents in these areas should check their collection calendars to ensure their bins are presented for collection on the correct day.

There will be no collections of green bins during December, January and February.
