Bin collections in Welwyn Hatfield will be on different days next week due to the early May Bank Holiday on Monday.

Welwyn Hatfield Council is running a revised collection service next week.

There will be no collections on Bank Holiday Monday, May 3.

So when will my bin be collected?

The bank holiday on Monday puts the whole week's schedule back a day across the borough.

So if your normal collection date is Monday, May 3, your bins will be collected on Tuesday, May 4 instead.

The knock-on effect is that bins that would normally be collected on Tuesday next week will now be emptied on Wednesday, May 5.
