Update on recycling and waste collections

30 June 2017

Recycling and waste collections are being carried out on time for the vast majority of households in the county borough.

While there are still some isolated areas with missed collections, Kier are addressing any outstanding issues as quickly as possible, and residents should continue to put their bags, sacks and boxes out for collection as normal.

Early indications are highly encouraging and Kier has reported huge increases in daily recycling tonnages.

The new system is being carefully monitored and evaluated, and further changes will be made over the next few weeks to ensure that it has bedded in properly and is running efficiently.

Missed collections

If your recycling or household waste has not been picked up, you should check your collection dates online.

If a collection was due, leave the sacks, boxes and bags out and report it by emailing or calling 01656 643643 and selecting the ‘waste’ option.

Recycling equipment

If you have not yet received all of your recycling equipment or need to order additional / replacement containers, please email or call 01656 643643 and Kier will deliver these to you as soon as possible.

If you have registered for the Absorbent Hygiene Products or ‘nappy’ collection but have not received the bags yet, please put your AHP items into the new blue bin bags, and if needed, use a black bag for any additional non-recyclable waste.

These will be collected from registered addresses without any penalties until such time as the AHP bags have been delivered. You can register by emailing or calling 01656 643643.

Find out more

Residents are urged to visit to find out everything they need to know about changes to home recycling.

As well as a short animation describing all of the changes, the website details what can and can’t be recycled in each of the new containers, while you can also read answers to the most commonly asked questions about the scheme.
