THERE will be no changes to bin collections in County Durham during the Easter Bank holiday weeks – weeks starting Monday, March 26 and Monday, April 2 .

This includes refuse and recycling as well as garden waste collections, for those who have signed up to the scheme.

Households who have collections on a Friday are therefore reminded to still put their bins out on Good Friday (March 30).

Residents are also advised to put their bins out for collection by 7am on their normal collection day.

Residents can ‘Save time and do it online’ if they wish to report a missed bin collection or order replacement bins. Simply register an account at Accounts can be accessed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
