The new rubbish collection service by B&NES will start from the week beginning Monday 6th November 2017. The Council will be providing every household with either a wheeled bin or a re-useable rubbish bag for the storage and collection of rubbish. Recycling collections, including food waste, will remain weekly and the emphasis will be on encouraging residents to use this weekly service to its maximum potential.
Container deliveries will start from September but the bins will be sealed, asking residents not to use them until the date the new collection starts. Containers will be delivered with a full instruction pack and collection calendar showing the collection day which may change from the current day. There are also likely to be changes to the usual collection time, so everyone will be reminded again to make sure their recycling and rubbish is put out by 7am on the correct collection day.
Waste doctors will be available through an online appointments booking system, to visit households to give advice to help residents make the best use of their recycling collection service. More information at www.bathnes.gov.uk/recycle
It is likely that residents will need more recycling containers to help them get ready for the change. They can be ordered free online at www.bathnes.gov.uk/orderacontainer
