We hav received this email about the changes in Waste Collection
Waste Day Change
The Council is changing the waste collection day for households throughout the district from
This change is in direct response to residents who want a more convenient waste collection service and the need to increase recycling rates to meet the Council’s key priority of addressing the causes and effects of climate change.
Every household will receive notice of their new collection day in the post about 2 weeks before the changes take place. There may be small areas where it is not possible for us to make these changes for logistical reasons, but the vast majority of households will be covered by these changes.
To increase awareness of the change amongst residents, we have set up a webpage on the public website – www.bathnes.gov.uk/wastedaychange - dedicated to explaining the change, which also contains a number of Frequently Asked Questions.
Please email us if you are aware of any streets in your ward saying where and why waste collections on the same day may be difficult – or if you have any queries about the Waste Day Change in relation to your local community.

The main construction work for the Odd Down Bus Lane is to start on 16th March and programmed to take 12 weeks to complete. However, to accommodate a number of ecological and archaeological constraints it has been necessary to undertake some preparatory work in advance of the main construction. The preparatory work includes removal of the screen planting adjacent to the roundabout together with portions of the existing boundary hedge on the Fosseway to a temporary holding area within the Odd Down Park & Ride site. The intension being to transplant the screening trees and hedge alongside the new bus lane during the coming autumn period. Supplementary planting will also be undertaken.
The recently erected fencing defines the temporary working area required by our contractors to undertake the construction works. On completion of the contract and reinstatement of the agricultural land this fencing will be removed.
