Separate Food Waste Collections

Just in case you missed the fairly good awareness campaign, the new waste contractor, Joint Waste Solutions has started collecting food waste separately from either the recycling or black bag waste from this week. Our first separate collection will be this Thursday. Primarily, this will mean that the food waste is likely to be collected at a different time to the main bin. The change is a good thing and will save the Council Tax payer money as the individual vans will unload when they are full, rather than the current setup that frequently sees a half load of recyclables or black bags being unloaded simply because the food waste on the van was at capacity.

Don’t forget, you can now put out textiles and small electrical items, including batteries, weekly. Just make sure stuff is appropriately bagged. Please see the above link for further details, guides and if you need to report anything issues.
