THE Waveney District Council offices will be open for business across the Christmas holidays.

Meanwhile the usual timetable for waste collections will be brought forward to ensure that everybody receives a collection over the festive period.

The council's local offices at Market Street, Beccles; Broad Street, Bungay; and London Road, Halesworth, will be closed on 25 and December 28 and January 1.

The Beccles office will be open on Monday 21 through to Wednesday December 23 from 9am to 1pm and 2pm to 4.30pm. It will also open on Thursday 24, and then Tuesday 29 through to Thursday December 31 from 9am to 1pm and 2pm to 4pm.

The Bungay and Halesworth offices will also open on Monday 21 through to Wednesday December 23 from 9am to 1pm and 2pm to 4.30pm.

They will then open at different times over the Christmas period. On Thursday 24 and Wednesday December 30, the local office at Broad Street, Bungay will be open between the hours of 9am to 1pm and 2pm to 4pm.

The office at London Road, Halesworth, will open on Tuesday 29 and Thursday December 31 at the same times.

Certain waste collections will be brought forward this year to ensure that everybody receives a collection over the festive period. The council has been distributing bin hangers, detailing Christmas collection dates and recycling tips. The hangers are being attached to wheelie bins during the regular collection schedule and each household should receive one prior to Christmas.

If the usual date is Monday 21 it will be Saturday 19; Tuesday 22 will be Monday 21; Wednesday 23 will be Tuesday 22; Thursday 24 will be Wednesday 23; Friday 25 will be Thursday 24; Monday 28 to Thursday 31 will be collected as normal; and Friday 1 2010 will be Saturday 2.

The council and Waveney Norse would like to thank residents for their co-operation and also make them aware that collection times may vary, so bins need to be out by 7am.

Come Twelfth Night, real Christmas trees can be disposed of in the green waste bin. Please remove all decorations and cut the tree up, so that it fits into the bin with the lid down. Alternatively, trees can be taken to any of the household waste recycling centres for disposal.

Waveney residents can also put their food waste in the green bin. Items such as wrapping paper, Christmas cards, envelopes, cardboard and cans can all be put in the blue bin for recycling and glass bottles can be taken to community bring sites at locations such as supermarkets.

Please do not leave extra bags of waste by the side of your bin, they will not be collected. Side waste may be treated as fly tipping or littering and both are criminal offences. Excess waste can be taken to your local Household Waste Recycling Centre, which will also accept your old electrical appliances.

The opening times and Christmas waste collection timetable can also be found in full on the Council's website. Visit www.waveney.gov.uk and click on the 'Christmas' banner on the homepage.
