Recycling Collection Changes

CHANGES TO BIN COLLECTIONS
A simplified recycling service with weekly collections for paper, cardboard, plastics, cans, cartons and glass will be introduced this summer, making recycling easier for residents. The weekly food service will continue . New single pass vehicles will replace the current two vehicle system. The new “Romanquips” can collect all recycling in one go. By using these vehicles we can deliver weekly recycling for the same cost as the old two vehicle fortnightly service. Residents will still need to sort their recycling for collection but can chose to use their existing containers or green boxes instead of bags for plastics and card-board. The weekly recycling will mean there is less recycling for residents to store at home . Once weekly recycling has been established the current 240 litre black bins for non-recyclable household waste will be swapped for smaller 140 litre bins.
The change is being made to encourage more re-cycling as the average contents of the old black bins contains 52% of recyclable material . The old bins will be collected and sold for onward processing where the plastic will be recycled into new recycling boxes. Some households have authoirsed extra capacity for black bins and they will continue to receive an extra capacity service which will be reviewed every year. Households with extra needs who are worried that they will struggle with a smaller bin can contact us so we can make sure the right support is provided before we change their bin.
Households with children under 5 in nappies can use our nappy bag collection service. They will be supplied with a roll of purple sacks for nappy waste which can be put out next to the black bin on collection day. This service means that there will be more space in the black bin for these fami-lies to dispose of normal non-recyclable waste. We are also helping families who wish to change to reusable nappies with our “Happy Nappies “ scheme where they can buy discounted reusable nappy kits for £128 (they normally retail at £250).
The collection routes will have to change. However households experiencing a change in collection day have been kept to a minimum. Any household waiting for a black bin collection for more than two days longer than the normal fortnight will be given an interim collection. More information about the Waste Strategy including frequently asked questions about the changes is available at www.southglos.gov.uk/wastestrategy.
