Bin there. Done that.

When will your bins be emptied this Easter?

The Easter bank holiday is here! You may be eating more at home. The rubbish is piling up. So when do your bins need to go out - especially as recycling centres are shut? And what do with all that chocolate packaging? 

You're asked to flatten cardboard Easter egg boxes and put them into brown bags (why brown is a mystery). Scrunch up foil before putting it in recycling boxes. Any plastic boxes (except black plastic) can also be recycled.

Here's everything you need to know, local authority by district council (same thing!).
