Christmas bin collection changes in Evesham and Pershore

Evesham Editorial 23rd Dec, 2020 Updated: 23rd Dec, 2020   0

CHANGES are being made to bin collections across Evesham and Pershore during Christmas and New Year.

Waste and recycling collections will take place as normal up to and including tomorrow (December 24).

Collections which normally take place on Friday (December 25) will now be done on Monday (December 28).

Bin collections next week on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday next week will take place 24 hours later as a result.




Collections which should take place on Thursday and Friday next week – New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day respectively – will be done on Saturday, January 2 and Monday, January 4 respectively.

Household Recycling Centres (HRCs) will be open except for Christmas Day, Boxing Day, and New Year’s Day. Residents are also being urged to delay having a new year clear out until later in January as social distancing restrictions remain in place at HRCs and too many people turning up at once may cause issues.


Charity shops are open and accepting donations, but restrictions are in place. Please call ahead before you visit with a donation. A list is available on our Christmas web page. Residents are urged not to leave donations on the street outside charity shops that are closed as this is fly-tipping and may lead to a fine or prosecution.

People are also encouraged to make reducing their waste a New Year’s resolution and to have a go at the 30-day zero waste challenge on the web page.

Coun Emma Stokes, Executive Board Member for Environment and Street Scene on Wychavon District Council, said: “We have seen an increase in recycling since March but the amount of waste people are generating is also on the increase. Reducing our waste is just one small way we can all play our part in protecting our planet and living more sustainably. I urge everyone to make it their New Year’s resolution for 2021.”
