Residents are being reminded that their recycling and waste collection days may be changing from 4 November.
New collection schedule calendars will start to arrive from 21 October.
These calendars have been posted to all households to give advance notice of the possible changes. These will detail a new collection schedule and the new time of 6.30am to have their bins ready for collection.
Most residents will be affected by the upcoming changes – however some may find their collection days remain the same.
The alterations to collection days will allow us, along with Ansa -our arms-length environmental services company, to maximise the efficiency of their collections by using less vehicles over a working day. This will deliver best value to residents.
These changes are also in preparation for a new food waste recycling service, which will be introduced in January. Full details of this will be provided in the next few months.
The new collection calendar details key dates for residents to be aware of, these are:
4 November – changes to recycling and waste collections will take effect and bins need to be at their collection point from 6.30am;
23 December to 3 January – we have increased our garden waste bin winter collections to now only stop collecting between these dates;
If your recycling or waste bin is due to be emptied on the Christmas and New Year bank holidays, please see your calendar as your collection days will change.
