____________________________________


 FOR THE FUTURE, from April 2013 onwards there will be a
collection each week. However, the weekly collection will alternate between a 'Black Bin' and a 'Green (recycling) Bin' - that is Black bin one week, Green bin the next.


In addition, each household has been provided with a 'Food Waste' bin - to be emptied each week, and a 'Kitchen Caddy'. It is intended that these be used as shown below -

The 7-litre kitchen caddy.
Use this to collect all your kitchen food waste, cooked or uncooked, including peelings, left overs, meat and dairy products and even bones.  The caddy can by lined with a compostable bin liner if you wish. Once you have used your initial supply you will need to purchase further supplies from local supermarkets or direct from council reception areas. Plastic bin liners or carrier bags must not be used as these are not compostable; your food waste will not be collected if you have used carrier bags.

The 23-litre outside food waste bin
- empty your kitchen caddy into this, or use it to put your food waste directly into. As with the kitchen caddy, if you wish to line this bin, please use compostable liners - or newspaper if you prefer.
Plastic liners or carrier bags must not be used as these are not compostable.  Your waste will not be collected if you use them. This bin will be emptied every week.


There is also a Garden Waste collection service available, using a Brown wheelie bin - though this has to be paid for. From 1 April 2014 the service will cost £41 per year for 25 fortnightly collections - one is omitted at Christmas each year.
Contact the Borough Council directly to join the service. However, note that currently (March 2014) the service is over subscribed and there is a waiting list for a bin.

Garden waste may be disposed of at the Willows re-cycling centre at Saddlebow.

The re-cycling centre at Saddlebow is open every day, except Christmas Day, Boxing day and New Year's Day, between 9am and 4pm October to March, and 9am and 6pm April to September.
See here for what you may, or may not, take to the recycling centre at Saddlebow.

Large, bulky items may be disposed of by making special arrangements with the Borough Council - though there are some restrictions - see the website or telephone 01553 776676

For just £28 we will collect and dispose of, up to three unwanted, large items from your home. There is no limit to the number of items you can dispose of, with each additional item being charged at £9.50 each.
