Lost track of time? Here’s when your next bin collection is


If you’re lucky, the days around Christmas can all merge into one with mince pies, cheese and Quality Street all seeming like suitable breakfast fare.

With this in mind, it’s very easy to lose track of when bin collections will take place over the festive period.

With Christmas and New Year bank holidays all over the place this year, there will be changes to the usual bin collection days.

Here’s a handy reminder of when your Christmas collection will take place and if you’ve completely forgotten when your usual collection day is, you can find out here.

Now more than ever, we need your help to fund the Bedford Independent’s quality journalism that serves our community...

We choose to champion editorial independence, meaning we report the facts without bias and can stand up to those in power when we believe it’s needed.

We can give a voice to people in our community whose voices may otherwise not be heard. And we don’t have a paywall, so everyone can read the stories we publish for free.

But in this time of crisis, many news organisations all over the world are facing existential threat, with advertising revenues plummeting. We’re no different.

We work hard every day to bring you news, commentary, entertainment and announcements from across Bedford. We hope that, with your help, we’ll be able to continue this for many years to come.
