Harrogate Borough Council is reminding residents that there will be changes to their waste and recycling collection dates over the Easter holidays.

There will be no collection on Good Friday (April 14) and Easter Monday (April 17), and for some residents collections will be earlier than their normal schedule.

The changes to the collection dates are (usual day first, new collection day in brackets): Monday, April 10 (April 8); Tuesday, April 11 (April 10); Wednesday, April 12 (April 11); Thursday, April 13 (April 12); Friday, April 14 (April 13); Monday, April 17 (April 18); Tuesday, April 18 (April 19); Wednesday, April 19 (April 20); Thursday, April 20 (April 21); and Friday, April 21 (April 22).

Normal service will resume from Monday, April 24.

Residents can check their waste and recycling collection dates by looking at the sticker on their bin or by visiting www.harrogate.gov.uk/inmyarea.

Harrogate Borough Council has an email and text messaging update service for residents, which notifies them directly of collection changes and other service issues.

Any resident who wishes to be added to this service can sign up for an account online at https://my.harrogate.gov.uk.
