Bin collection changes for Queen Elizabeth II's funeral

Published Monday, 12 September 2022

Residents are being advised that household bins will not be collected this Monday (19 September) as the nation joins together to mourn and remember Queen Elizabeth II.

The late Queen Elizabeth’s funeral will take place on Monday, with King Charles III and the government revealing that the day will be marked as a bank holiday. As a result, many businesses, offices, and official buildings, including schools and councils from across the country, will be shut as a mark of respect. 

Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council’s services, including bin collections, will not run on Monday, and the borough council’s offices at The Hub will also remain closed. 

Bin collections that had been scheduled to take place on Monday will now be collected as follows:

  • Garden bins (Burbage) will be collected on Thursday 15 and Friday 16 September
  • Refuse bins (Ratby and Groby) will be collected on Tuesday 20 and Wednesday 21 September
  • Recycling bins (Burbage) will be collected on Thursday 22 and Friday 23 September
  • Refuse and garden bins in the rural villages of Barton in Beans, Bilstone, Carlton, Congerstone, Gopsall, Odstone, Shackerstone, Little Twycross, and Norton Juxta Twycross will be collected on Friday 16 September

Residents are being advised that their bins should be placed outside for two days by 7am on their new collection day. 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.
