Residents are reminded that household refuse and recycling collection days remain changed until Friday 21 January 2005 due to Christmas and New Year bank holidays.
The additional bank holidays, due to Christmas and New Year’s Day falling on weekends, mean the collection days were affected over a four-week period. Residents have been advised of the changes in collection days through the council’s magazine, My Merton, and posters displayed around the borough. The information is also available online at http://www.merton.gov.uk/refuse.
Councillor Linda Kirby, Cabinet Member for Environmental Quality, said: “We apologise to residents for any disruption caused by the temporary changes in collection days due to the increased number of bank holidays over the festive period. Your collection days will be back to normal from Monday 24 January 2005”
