The Boroughbridge service is usually provided on the second Saturday of each month, except January, but this January service will replace last month’s visit, which did not take place. The mobile centre will be in the Back Lane car park between 9am and 1pm.

Emma Bagley, Contracts Manager for the County Council’s contractor, Yorwaste, said: “We apologise to any residents that were unable use the service in December. Unfortunately, an administrative error meant the visit was missed. We hope residents will find the replacement January service of use after the holiday period.”

Items accepted include:

  • General rubbish along with the following household waste is accepted at all mobile centres:
  • furniture (including beds, mattresses, sofas and chairs), bric-a-brac;

  • mixed textiles and clothes;
