Christmas waste and recycling collections | Sevenoaks District Council

Christmas waste and recycling collections

Over the festive period, our refuse collection teams will be working extra days so you don’t miss a waste collection.

This year, waste collections will take place on the usual day, even if it’s a bank holiday.

Please do not put your sacks out a day or two earlier or later as you may have done in previous years - simply put them out on your usual collection day.

If you receive a garden waste collection, there will be no changes to this service either.

Please put your black and clear sacks out at 7am and your garden waste out at 6.30am on your collection day.

Christmas clinical waste

If we collect your clinical waste, including sharps boxes, there may be changes to your usual collection days:

  • Collections scheduled for Friday 24 and Saturday 25 December will take place on Friday 24 December
  • Collections scheduled for Friday 31 December and Saturday 1 January will take place on Friday 31 December.

Please put your clinical waste out by 6am on both Fridays.

Christmas commercial waste collections

There will be no changes to commercial waste collections up to and including Friday 31 December, even if your usual collection day takes place on a bank holiday.

If you do not require a waste collection between 27 and 31 December, please tell us in advance, email or call 01732 227000.

From Monday 3 January, all trade waste collections will happen a day later than usual. A normal service will resume from 10 January.
