Waste Consultation

Following public consultation the following proposals were agreed by the Council's Executive on 7 September.

Alternate Weekly Collection
This means 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 collection
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 As well as this, the option for using green sacks will be withdrawn but you will be able to request a green bin if you wish to.
