There will be no bin collections and leisure centres will be closed across Dorset for The Queen’s funeral. Dorset Council will observe the State Funeral of Her Majesty The Queen on Monday (September 19) and has confirmed that most of their public services will be suspended for the day.
A majority of council services will be closed or suspended for the day, including bin collections, recycling centres, libraries, leisure centres and outdoor education centres. Residents who have their bins collected on Mondays are being advised not to put out their waste for collection but instead on Friday evening (September 23) for collection on Saturday morning (September 24).
According to Dorset Council, this is how services will be affected on Monday:
There will be no kerbside bin collections of any kind on Monday, September 19. If your bins are usually emptied on a Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday/Friday, please put your waste out as normal.
If your bins/bags/boxes are usually collected on a Monday, crews will endeavour to empty these on Saturday, September, so please do not put your rubbish or recycling bin out until Friday night.
Food waste bins will be emptied on your next collection day (Monday, September 16). If you need to dispose of your food waste before this time, please take it to a household recycling centre from Tuesday (September 20). Crews hope to catch-up with these garden waste collections from Tuesday, so leave your bin out until it is emptied.
