Calendar ‘hangers’ with details of the new dates will be placed on black bins between 12 and 23 May.

The changes will see a new fortnightly schedule introduced for all households, with black and green bins collected in one week and the green recycling box collected in the other.

Plastics and cardboard will also be collected on alternate weeks, while food waste will continue to be collected weekly.

All waste and recycling will need to be put out by 7am to ensure collection.

The changes are the first revisions to the district’s waste collection dates since 2010 and will help to accommodate the new recycling services — including mixed plastics, Tetrapak cartons and small electrical items — which were introduced on 31 March.

Any residents who have not received a bin hanger by Monday 26 May should contact the council on or by telephoning 01454 868 000.
