Households in Bath retain weekly bin collections thanks to Government scheme

Don Foster, Liberal Democrat MP for Bath has welcomed the news that 73,993 homes in Bath and North East Somerset will have their weekly waste and recycling services safeguarded thanks to a new scheme from the Coalition Government.
One of 85 Councils to benefit from the Weekly Collection Support Scheme, Bath and North East Somerset Council will receive £2,185, 082 to support weekly waste and recycling collections, reward environmental improvements in the community and increase recycling levels.
Commenting, Dave Dixon, Liberal Democrat Councillor and B&NES Council Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods welcomed the news:
“Bath and North East Somerset Council genuinely had a choice as to whether or not to move to fortnightly waste collections.
“As a result of this funding we have been able to stick by our commitment to not alter waste and recycling collections over the next four years. This ties in very well with the contract end dates with our current operators.”
