Inverclyde Festive Bin Collections

Thursday 22 November 2018

Christmas is coming and Inverclyde Council’s bin collection crews are gearing up for their busiest time of the year.

Environment & Regeneration Convener Councillor Michael McCormick said: “While we are all enjoying the food and fun of the festivities our collection crews will be hard at work.

“But we can all do a lot to make their jobs a little easier and do our bit for the environment.

Festive Bin Collection

“By making use of Inverclyde’s excellent recycling facilities we can help reduce the impact of the additional waste this time of year always generates.

“Wrapping paper, Christmas cards, empty selection boxes, cans and plastic bottles can all go in our blue bins. Large cardboard packaging and additional recyclable materials can be left alongside for collection while our green containers are ideal for recycling leftover or unwanted food.”

During the Christmas and New Year period, bins will be emptied as follows:
