Waste Collection Changes

A presentation on the changes to the Waste and Recycling Service for 2020

Minutes:

Martin Litherland - Head of Service, Waste Management, Wiltshire Council gave a short presentation that outlined Wiltshire Council’s proposed changes to waste collection.

 

Points made included:

 

·       That Wiltshire Council would be changing the way it collected materials for recycling in 2020.

 

·       As part of these changes some recycling collection days would change.

 

·       Residents would receive further information through the post, including details of new collection days, in advance of changes being made.

 

·       Residents would be able to view their new collection days and print a collection calendar from the council’s website once these days had been confirmed.

 

·       The changes would make it even easier for residents to use the kerbside recycling collection service and would reduce the number of vehicles the council used.

 

·       Fewer vehicles would mean a reduction in Wiltshire Council’s impact on the environment.

 

·       A new materials recovery facility was being built which will sort the recycling, reducing the requirement for residents to separate their recyclable materials at home.

 

·       Starting shortly, paper, food and drink cans, aerosols and foil will also be collected in the blue lidded bin which currently takes plastic bottles, pots, tubs and trays, cardboard boxes and food and drink cartons. A new fleet of vehicles will be used to empty the blue lidded bin and the black box together, which means fewer vehicles and so a reduction in the impact on the environment. All collections will remain fortnightly.
