RESIDENTS have been informed that black bins will be collected later than usual over the coming week.

As we prepare to see in the New Year residents have been warned about changes to bin collections.

Test Valley Borough Council has taken to Facebook to share the news with residents and make them aware of the changes.

Black bins will be collected a day later than the usually planned collection date. This will include Saturday if residents' collection is usually on a Friday.

They posted: "Next week, we'll be collecting your black bins a day later than usual, including on Saturday, 31 December, if your collection is usually a Friday.

"Please leave your bin at the edge of your property by 7am on collection day.

"Excess waste? Pop a bin bag beside your black bin and our teams will collect it. Collection teams will only empty one black bin per property unless extra bin capacity has been authorised."

Residents are encouraged to check the Test Valley Borough Council website for all the latest changes at
