Refuse and recycling collection services for May Day bank holiday
As a result of the May Day bank holiday there will be no changes to recycling collection days in Hackney, but there will be some changes to refuse collection days over this period.

Refuse collections scheduled to take place between Monday 6 and Friday 10 May will all be collected a day after their normal service.

That means if your waste is normally collected on a Monday it will picked up on Tuesday 7 May. Similarly, if it is normally collected on a Friday it will be revised to Saturday 11 May.

Refuse collections return to normal on Monday 13 May 2013.
