BOROUGH RESIDENTS in Hinckley and Bosworth have been advised that household bins will not be collected next Monday (19 September) as the nation will join together to mourn and remember Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
This is because the late Queen Elizabeth’s funeral will take place on Monday – and King Charles and the Government have stated this will be marked as a bank holiday.
As a result, many businesses, offices, and official buildings, such as schools and councils across the country are to be closed as a mark of respect.
Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council’s services will be affected, as their bin collection service will not run, and the Hinckley Hub offices will remain closed.
Bin collections which were initially set to take place on Monday have now been rescheduled – with some of the collections taking place this Thursday (15 September).
The rescheduled bin collections are as follows:
- 15 September and 16 September: Garden bins (Burbage, Witherley, Atterton and Higham on the Hill)
- 20 September and 21 September: Refuse bins (Ratby and Groby)
- 22 September and 23 September: Recycling bins (Burbage, Witherley, Atterton and Higham on the Hill)
- 16 September: Refuse and garden bins (Barton in Beans, Bilstone, Carlton, Congerstone, Gopsall, Odstone, Shackerstone, Little Twycross, and Norton Juxta Twycross)
Residents are being advised that their bins should be placed outside for two days by 7am on their new collection day.
A Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council spokesperson added: “Waste collectors will not be able to return for missed bins and will also be unable to collect any side waste, other than the normal arrangements for extra recycling. Offices and services will run again as normal from Tuesday 20 September.”
