There are no changes to bin collections on Bank Holidays, except over Christmas and New Year.

Your bins will be collected on the same day as usual over Easter and on the two May bank holiday Mondays.

So if your bin day is on a Bank Holiday at any time of year except Christmas and New Year, please put your bins out on the same day as usual.

If you don't know which day your bin is normally collected, you can check by using our bin day finder.

The tip at Shidas Lane, Oldbury is open every day of the year except for Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day.

Details of any changes to bin collections will also be advertised in the local newspaper, on our Facebook page, on Twitter or you can subscribe to our free text updates.
