Changes to Waste Collection

Posted by

Garden and Food Waste Collection Service

The planned changes to the food waste and garden waste kerbside collections will start on 10th October.

The garden waste (brown bin) collections will not cease as per previous years during the winter months, but will remain in place. This expanded garden waste service will now include food waste.

From the 10th October, residents on a brown bin route should continue to present their brown bins but should also place their food waste, in the food waste bags if they wish, into their brown bin.  The brown bin will continue to be collected on the same day as their blue bin.

The brown bin service will now operate all year round.  Green food waste caddies will not be emptied from that date at households on brown bin routes.  However, residents can continue to use their outdoor caddy for storage and transfer of food waste to their brown bins.

Residents who are not on a brown bin route, eg flatted properties, should continue to present their food waste caddies weekly for uplift.
