Following public consultation the following proposals were
agreed by the Council's Executive on 7 September.
Alternate Weekly Collection
that the collection of orange bins would continue to operate on a
fortnightly basis and your black bin collection would also be
collected every other week. This system would operate on an
alternate basis – one week black bin collection and the following
week orange bin collection.
Changes to the garden/green bin
Currently we collect garden waste in green
lidded bins or green sacks every fortnight. We don’t collect garden
waste over the Christmas and New Year period. Under the new
proposal we would not collect your green bin over a slightly longer
period - from beginning of December to the end February. As well as
this, the option for using green sacks will be withdrawn but you
will be able to request a green bin if you wish to.
