IMPORTANT CHANGES TO THE SERVICE
The council is introducing a number of important changes to the waste collection service.
- All residents must recycle as much as possible using the triple boxes.
- Side waste (extra bagged waste) will not be collected. All waste needs to fit inside the green wheeled bin.
- From 1st April 2012 residents must pay for a second garden waste bin collection. All residents are allowed one bin for garden waste collected free of charge.
- From 1st April 2012 residents will be charged for replacement wheeled bins and recycling boxes
- From 1st June 2012 cardboard will no longer be accepted in your brown (garden waste) bin. Instead it must be placed in the green wheeled bin or taken to the CRC. This is to improve the quality of our garden waste collections and the compost produced.
- A leaflet will be sent to every household in our area by the end of April giving full details of these changes.
