But have you received your new bins and recycling bags?
South Gloucestershire Council’s new kerbside recycling collection service for plastic bottles and food waste begins next week (Monday 22nd November) but not all households have received their new bins.
A package of two grey bins for food waste and a white bag for plastic bottles should have been delivered to all homes in the area (except flats, which will not initially receive the new services) but residents in some streets of Bradley Stoke say they don’t yet have the new containers.
A recorded message on the Council’s StreetCare hotline (01454 868000) was last week advising residents not to be concerned as deliveries of the new bins would continue over the weekend (Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st November).
The Council also says that “supplier problems” with the white recycling bags may mean they are not available in time for the first collections.
The current two week schedule of alternating green and black bin collections will continue, with plastic bottles being collected in the same weeks as the black bin. Food waste will, however, be collected every week.
A further change being introduced is that cardboard, which could previously be placed in the green bin, must now be put out separately for collection.
