Residents have been urged to separate their waste at home before visiting, in order to reduce delays.

A council spokesperson said: “There are no changes to waste, recycling and garden waste collections this bank holiday Monday.

“Please put your bin out by 7am, on your normal collection day.

“Household recycling centres (HRC) will be open, but are likely to be busy over the May bank holiday and queues are expected.

“Please save time by sorting your waste before visiting. If you don’t have time at home, make use of the sorting tables while on site.”
