Your council at Christmas

You are here

The operating times for the various council services differ over the festive period.

Opening times for the Customer Services Centre and other Ipswich Borough Council facilities can be viewed by selecting the relevant link below:

Bin collections

Waste collections do change over Christmas – there will be no brown bin collections on or between Monday 23 December and Saturday 4 January as the Council puts all its effort into collecting extra waste and recycling materials after Christmas. Brown bin collections will resume on Tuesday 7th January 2020.

Blue and black bin collections are changing over the festive period. View all bin collection changes.

Ipswich HEARS

The Ipswich HEARS and CCTV emergency centre staff are on duty 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, so it is no change for them over Christmas.

Emergency contacts

If you have an emergency and need to speak to someone at the council during the Christmas period you should call the Emergency Control Centre on 01473 433444.

The general reception and Repairs Centre numbers will also divert through to the Emergency Control Centre during this period.
