York’s final round of garden waste collections start on Monday (November 20).
The next fortnight is the final chance for the 67,000 homes to fill their green bins with autumn leaves, cuttings and windfall fruit, with the service restarting on Easter Monday (April 2)
Anyone who misses that last collection can still take their waste to York’s two household waste recycling centres, which remain open every day except Christmas, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.
New rubbish and recycling calendars have been delivered to every household in the city over the last two months.
City centre properties with St Nick’s recycling collections will receive their calendars by the end of November.
The calendars also contain details of this year’s Christmas collection arrangements – there are no waste collections on the week of Christmas Day, but every household will get an extra rubbish collection either the week before or after Christmas.
You can also check your recycling dates on the City of York Council website here.
