Help us create a 4-bin waste service that is right for our community

By February 18, 2021No Comments

We are looking at changes that will impact how often we collect your bins, their size and cost, including:

  • The size of your bins and how often they are picked up
  • Options for residents who do not have space for a glass bin
  • How we deliver hard waste collections
  • What we deliver to non-residential properties, such as schools and charities
  • How we support people with concessions or who have extra needs.

The changes won’t be introduced until at least 2022. We do not know how this change will work or what it will look like yet. This is where you can help us design how the four-bin service will work best for our community.
