Poole residents are being reminded to put out their Christmas refuse and recycling ready for collection by Borough of Poole.
Refuse bins and blue bins should be placed on the kerbside by 7am on the normal collection day ready to be picked up by the collection teams.
Due to the increase in waste generated over the Christmas period collection times may differ from normal. Residents are asked to leave their waste out until 11pm to ensure that all properties due for a collection are visited and all additional waste is removed.
Councillor Xena Dion, Cabinet Portfolio Holder for the Environment, Borough of Poole, said: "Collection services have been operating smoothly following the Christmas holiday period in which crews are given the Christmas week off in lieu of the bank holidays they work during the rest of the year.
"Additional refuse vehicles are being used to cope with the extra Christmas waste and we would like to thank residents for their support and assistance during this time."
