Bin collection day changing to Thursdays

From week beginning 18 September 2023 many residents will have a change to their bin collections.  In Haslingfield, this means that bin collection day is changing from Wednesdays to Thursdays.

All residents need to be aware that because new bin collection routes are being created from scratch the time that their bin is emptied may be different from now, so bins need to be ready for collection by 6am.

New bin collection schedules from 18 September can be checked at www.scambs.gov.uk/binchanges and compared with the current schedule at Find your household bin collection day – South Cambs District Council (scambs.gov.uk) to see if your sequence is changing. Letters will be sent to all addresses which will have a change.
