CBC news circular - update on bin collection consultation

Over 15,000 people took part in the consultation on possible changes to bin collections and the council has listened to their views.

Nearly everyone (94%) said they thought it was important that everyone is helped to recycle more. So, when the new bin collection contract starts in the Autumn next year, the council will introduce these new services to help people recycle as much as possible:

• weekly food waste collections for everyone

• a choice of wheelie bin or reusable bags for fortnightly garden waste collections and

• potential kerbside glass collections for all

Charging for garden waste was the least popular option for residents so the council has discarded this idea.

After listening to residents’ concerns about three-weekly black bin collections, the council is not proposing to introduce this service at this point but may look to introduce this in the longer term when residents have been supported to recycle as much as possible, so reducing waste in their black bin, making three-weekly collection more manageable.
