Consultation enters last week

Lorry fleet 2017

The consultation on Refuse and Reycling services has entered its last week, with Blaby District Council encouraging residents to have their say.

£740,000 will be lost from June 2018, including £505,000 in recycling credits from Leicestershire County Council. The remaining £235,000 of a five-year, £2 million Central Government grant awarded in 2013 to run weekly recycling collections will also come to an end.

The four-week consultation will run from Thursday 19 October and close at midnight on Thursday 16 November. New proposals include:

  • Moving to an alternate weekly collection
  • All households with four or more occupants, eligible to receive a replacement 240 litre refuse bin and recycling bin free of charge, an increase from the current 140 litre standard bin.
  • Households under four persons can order a replacement 240ltr recycling bin for free, and a 240ltr refuse bin for a small one-off cost.

Residents can visit www.blaby.gov.uk/waste2018 to find out more and have their say. Paper copies will be available at local libraries and on request.

All views will be gathered and taken into consideration before a final decision is made by Councillors at a meeting planned for early 2018. Residents will be kept up-to-date with all future plans before full implementation of any changes in the summer of 2018.
