Waste and recycling arrangements

Collections will continue to take place as usual over the Christmas and New Year period, except for Christmas Day and New Year’s Day:

  • If your collection is due on Christmas Day (Tuesday, 25 Dec) it will instead take place on Saturday, 29 December.
  • If your collection is due on New Year’s Day (Tuesday, 1 Jan) this will instead take place on Saturday, 5 January.


During the week beginning 7 January 2019, we will be carrying out an extra collection of your recycling bin on your usual day. Please put your blue-lidded bin out during this week, alongside any other bins that are scheduled.

Daventry District Council's offices and Contact Centre will be closed from Christmas Day, reopening on Wednesday 2 January. Any missed collections during the period can be reported via our online self-serve system
