Council arrangements for Queen's funeral bank holiday

Published: 13/09/2022

AS A MARK of respect during Her Majesty the Queen’s state funeral on Monday, September 19, Copeland Borough Council's offices will be closed on that day, and all waste and recycling collections will be one day later than normal that week.

This includes  a collection on Saturday, September 24, for those due to be collected on Friday, September 23. (This is a one-off waste arrangement for the Queen’s funeral. For future bank holidays, the council will revert to carrying out collections as normal on that day.)

Distington Crematorium will be closed, but the Chapel of Remembrance will be open from 9am until 4pm.

The council's out-of-hours emergency numbers are as follows:

  • issues relating to homelessness and domestic abuse support - 01946 598300
  • dangerous structures - 01946 598307
  • flooding, sandbags requests for residential properties and serious food safety incidents - 01946 598300 (or email for sandbags).
