Bin collection amendment for bank holiday to mark State Funeral

Last Modified September 13, 2022


Our civic offices will be closed on Monday 19 September to observe the national bank holiday in honour of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s state funeral.

Accordingly, waste collections will slip a day, meaning black bin collections will take place a day later as shown below.

Normal collection day                                   Revised collection day

Monday 19 September                                 Tuesday 20 September

Tuesday 20 September                                 Wednesday 21 September

Wednesday 21 September                          Thursday 22 September

Thursday 22 September                                Friday 23 September

Friday 23 September                                      Saturday 24 September

Normal collections will resume on Monday 26 September.


A book of condolence for Her Majesty The Queen will remain open at our Civic Offices in Borehamwood during office opening hours until 5.15pm on Tuesday 20 September should members of the public wish to contribute thoughts and reflections.

Floral tributes can be left at the flagpoles outside our Civic Offices.

We recognise that many communities may wish to come together and observe the funeral and note that the BBC has granted a TV License dispensation allowing communal settings where TV is not usually watched to screen the live programme without need to purchase a license.
