Waste Recycling – Latest Information

Waste and Recycling: Date 13th December 2017

Our contractor Amey are operating a normal collection service today (13/12/2017)wherever possible.

They report that all is going well and most roads are accessible. Those roads they haven’t managed to access this morning were being revisited this afternoon when the forecast rain will hopefully improve conditions on the ground.

  • Amey have also confirmed that the Shaw Rd household waste and recycling site is open today and operating normally.

Customers whose bins were not collected on Monday or Tuesday when collections were cancelled have been informed of the following arrangements:

  • Brown bins (residual non-recyclable waste) will be collected on customers’ normal, scheduled collection dates next week and crews will also take up to 2 bags of side waste (this must be bagged).

Additional crews have been deployed to collect black bins (recyclable waste) due to the fact the next scheduled collection dates for black bins wouldn’t be until after Christmas for those whose collections were missed on Monday and Tuesday. Customers are advised to leave their black bins out and crews are confident they will have collected all missed bins by the end of next week.

  • All bulky waste collections that were scheduled for Monday are being collected today. No bulky waste collections were booked in yesterday.

Any tip permits for use on Monday when tips were closed will be honoured for the rest of this week.

Hope this information is useful to residents.
