Your bin collection day may be changing

Published: Tuesday 9th October

 

Use our postcode finder to check your new collection day (comes into effect from Monday 15th October)

 

Changes to bin collection days in Bedford Borough come into effect from Monday 15th October.

 

The changes will save taxpayers’ money, reduce the Council’s impact on the environment and maintain a weekly black bin collection for all residents and are being implemented following an extensive awareness raising campaign to inform residents ahead of the changes being introduced.


More than three quarters of households will have a new collection day from 15th October.

 

By now, all households should have received a leaflet detailing all the changes and explaining the reasons for them. The leaflet confirms the collection day and provides a new recycling calendar for the next 12 months, as well as providing a wealth of information about recycling opportunities.


In addition, a dedicated webpage and postcode finder allows residents to quickly and easily check their new collection day, www.bedford.gov.uk/bins

 

All households are asked to make sure their bins are available for collection by 7am on their collection day (even if their day has not changed) as the new rounds will also mean that your usual collection time is likely to change.

 

Mayor of Bedford Borough, Dave Hodgson, said: “This is the first time for more than 10 years the Council has reviewed the bin collection rounds and the new, more efficient routes, come into effect from Monday 15th October.

 

“More than three quarters of the 67,000 households in the borough will have a new bin collection day from Monday and it is important all local residents read their leaflet or visit the dedicated webpage to ensure they know what the changes will mean to them.

 

“The new and more efficient collection routes will help us save taxpayers money while maintaining the level of service for all households.  Everyone will still have their black bin rubbish collected every week, with recycling and green waste still on alternate weeks.”
