As Christmas fast approaches, it is time to start thinking of how to get rid of the rubbish that accumulates over the festive period. 

Bin collections in Bolton are mainly the same, but the Christmas period differs slightly in different areas. 

If you live in Bolton you must ensure your bins are out by 7.30am on bin collection days.

The council has asked for residents to continue to put bins out for collection on the normal collection schedule.

They are asking residents to leave bins out with the lid fully closed before 7.30am on collections day and park all vehicles responsibly.

You can leave extra recycling next to your beige and burgundy bins in a cardboard box or clear plastic bag, and excess waste next to your grey bin will not be collected.

You can visit the Bolton Council website for full details on what you can and cannot recycle.
