Residents in Blaby district who usually have their bins collected on Monday will receive a full refuse, recycling and garden waste service on the Saturdays before Easter Monday (April 25) and the two May bank holidays (May 2 and May 30).
The Council is also providing a full refuse, recycling and garden waste service on Good Friday and the royal wedding day (April 29).
Extra waste will no longer be collected on the Monday following bank holidays due to the new Saturday service being introduced.
Kevin Pegg, neighbourhood services group manager said:
“We have worked hard to introduce a system which is fair to all our customers and will continue to listen to feedback from residents to help shape our service.”
