For most Greater Manchester residents missing a bin collection is not something they will have to worry about over the Easter weekend.

Greater Manchester councils have announced their plans for rubbish and recycling collection over the Easter bank holiday weekend.

Tweaks to refuse collection schedules are always something for residents to keep in mind over the long weekend. However, the majority of town halls have stated that ‘it is business as usual’ for them.

The majority of people in Greater Manchester will be able to enjoy the holiday period without the dreaded feeling of missing bin day. The only changes were in Wigan, where bins were collected a day earlier than usual in the week beginning Monday 3 April.

Bin duties in Wigan will be going back to normal on the week commencing April 10, the council has confirmed.

No collections will take place in the city-region on either Friday 7 April (Good Friday) or Easter Monday (10 April).
