WHEN you're gearing up for a holiday, the last thing you need is to stress over changes to your weekly routine, including when to put your bin out.

So, we've checked the changes, to make your life easier.

Test Valley Borough Council has confirmed that today's collections (Good Friday, April 2) will be as normal.

However, on Easter Monday (April 5), there will be no collection.

Therefore, all collections in Andover next week will be a day later than their usual day.

The council website states that residents should put their bins out by 7am on their collection day. 

The collection of household waste and recycling takes place on alternate weeks. This means that your black household waste wheeled bin will be emptied one week and your brown recycling wheeled bin will be emptied the following week.
