Dates for Douglas refuse and recycling collection over festive period

Wed, 20 Dec 2023

Douglas City Council has announced the dates for its refuse and recycling collections over the festive period.

As Christmas Day this year falls on Monday, homes due to receive a collection on that Monday will instead have their waste picked up on Saturday, December 23.

Residents are asked to place their wheelie bin out on the evening of Friday, December 22 for collection on the Saturday morning.

The same will apply for those whose refuse collection is scheduled for New Year’s Day with the collection instead taking place on Saturday, December 30.

All other refuse collections across Douglas will continue as usual over Christmas and New Year.

Households in Round 4 will have their recycling collected on December 28 and those in Round 5 on December 29.

All other rounds will remain the same and residents can refer to their Kerbside calendar for the schedule.  

The local authority is again running its Christmas tree recycling initiative with collections of natural Christmas trees on Saturday, January 6 at the following locations:

  • Noble’s Park (Grandstand Car Park) 9am – 9.45am
  • Governor’s Hill (adjacent to Play Area) 10am – 10.45am
