Did you know that our refuse and recycling crews start their work bright and early? It’s important you know this so you don’t miss out on your bin/recycling collection.
We need your bins and recycling to be presented on the kerbside by 7.30am on your collection day. If they’re not, you run the risk of missing out.
However please always be considerate and don’t present your bins/recycling in a way that could block prams or others from using the pavement.
Even if you think your collection doesn’t usually come until later in the day, our routes will often vary and change over the course of the day, depending on the conditions we encounter.
So the only way to avoid putting your bins and recycling out too late is having them on the kerbside at 7.30am.
Not a morning person? In that case, please put them out ready the night before 😉
Cllr David A Bithell, Lead Member for Environment and Transport, said, “It’s important to all of us to have our bins and recycling collected, but not everyone knows that our crews begin their work very early in the morning.
“We need your bins and recycling to be ready for us by 7.30am on your collection day…if you put them out later, our crews could’ve already been to your street.”APPLY FOR A PUPIL DEVELOPMENT GRANT
