Waste and recycling collections in Welwyn Hatfield will change over the next two weeks due to the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

There will be changes to scheduled rubbish collection dates over the period from Saturday, May 28 to Saturday, June 11.

Bin collections will take place earlier in the days leading up to the Jubilee Bank Holidays – Thursday, June 2 and Friday, June 3 – and bins need to be put out a day later the week after.

Residents who would normally expect to have their waste bins collected on Monday, May 30 will have them collected on Saturday, May 28.

Next week's usual Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday collections (May 31-June 2) will also be a day earlier, so Tuesday's bins will be picked up on Monday, May 30 and so on.

There are no collections scheduled over the extended four-day Queen's Platinum Jubilee Bank Holiday weekend – Thursday, June 2 to Sunday, June 5.

Collections resume on Monday, June 6, when the previous Friday's (June 3) collection is due to take place.
