Bin collections in Oldham will not be affected by the Bank Holiday Weekend.
Despite the public holiday disrupting shop opening hours and giving most people two extra days off work, residents expecting their bins to be emptied on Good Friday or Easter Monday will be able to carry on as normal.
People in Failsworth, Hollinwood, and Werneth should have had their bins collected as usual today, and homes in Crompton, Royton, and Shaw should have collections take place as usual tomorrow.
Binmen will be out in Alexandra, Medlock Vale, Waterhead, and the St Mary’s area of the borough on Monday.
Collections in Saddleworth, Moorside, and Sholver scheduled for Tuesday are not set to be affected.
All bins must be put out by 7am on collection day and should be taken back in by 8am the next day.
