Waste and recycling arrangements 2019

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

  • If your collection is due on Christmas Day (Wednesday, 25 Dec) it will instead take place on Saturday, 28 December.
  • If your collection is due on Boxing Day (Thursday, 26 Dec) it will instead take place on Sunday, 29 December. 
  • If your collection is due on New Year’s Day (Wednesday, 1 Jan) this will instead take place on Saturday, 4 January.

During the week beginning 23 December, all households will get an extra blue bin recycling collection on their usual collection day. This includes households whose collections have been rescheduled from Christmas Day and Boxing Day to the following weekend.

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