Following the Council meeting on Tuesday, we are now finalising the consultation which we will publicise widely to get as much resident response as possible.
The Council has not yet made a decision to make alterations to the manner in which refuse and recycling is collected. However, as reported, it is something that is currently being considered.
Going forward, we want to ensure that residents receive a sustainable, quality refuse and recycling service. In order to do this we need residents to tell us both about their current situation and what might work best for them.
Proposals of the new scheme are designed to make necessary savings but also to encourage residents to recycle more. We want to stress that current plans include giving residents the option to upgrade their bin from the standard 140ltr to 240ltr.
The proposal is that there will be increased capacity for recycling with the issue of larger recycling bins at no cost to residents should they require the extra capacity.
Look out for more information on the consultation to have your say.
When the consultation launches we will have an FAQ, online form and details of plans. We are in the early stage of proposing these changes and residents input into that redesign is very important to us.
In the meantime you can view the proposals discussed at Tuesday's meeting by visiting the public document and read from page 19.
