August bank holiday refuse collections
Posted on Wednesday 23rd August 2017
Newport City Council will be collecting refuse and garden waste on the usual days in the week beginning Monday 28 August.
Wastesavers will also be collecting kerbside recycling on the normal days that week.
Traditionally, collections are made one day later than normal following a bank holiday. However, following a trial for the May bank holiday it was decided to keep collections so they will not be affected by this August bank holiday.
It means that council refuse teams and Wastesavers will be working on Monday 28 August for those households who normally have Monday collections and so on through the week.
This will mean that Friday collections will also be made as normal rather than on the Saturday as has happened previously after a bank holiday.
Newport City Council and Wastesavers have decided to make this operational change because it worked so well last bank holiday.
