Residents across Allerdale are now be able to download a printable calendar showing their property’s schedule of bin collections for the rest of the year. 

The new calendar can be easily downloaded as a PDF for people to view at their leisure on their mobile device or printed off to pin up in their home. The calendar will contain a property’s collection details until the end of March 2021. 

All residents need to do to generate their collection calendar is to go to, type in their postcode and then select their address from a drop-down menu. They will then have the option to download the calendar as a PDF file and print if they wish. 

The council’s popular online calendar which shows details of the next collections will still also be available for residents via the same web page. Residents are encouraged to continue using this as it shows up to the minute information, including whether crews have already been to their property on their collection day, as well as providing them with a way of reporting a missed collection online. 

Cllr Tony Markley, Executive member for environmental services, said:

“Many of our residents have been in touch with us asking us to produce a printable version of our online calendar and our officers have been working hard to get this ready. I hope those this will be a useful tool for those residents who prefer to access their collection details this way.”
