Same Day Collection

We hav received this email about the changes in Waste Collection

Waste Day Change 8th June 2009

The Council is changing the waste collection day for households throughout the district from Monday 8th June 2009. The rubbish, recycling, cardboard and garden waste will all be collected on the same day of the week – although the cardboard and garden waste service will remain fortnightly.

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.
