Festive season refuse and recycling collections 2015
« on: December 11, 2015, 01:55:13 pm »
The council has sent out a reminder of the plans for collections over the festive season.


To save you clicking on the link the main points are copied below and contained in the screen grab attached.   :D

Brown bin collections will be suspended for two weeks over the festive period to allow the black bin and blue-lidded bin collections to be maintained with minimum disruption. There will be no collections on the weeks commencing 28 December 2015 and 4 January 2016.

The council is also giving advice on how to effectively recycle seasonal waste:

- Plain Christmas cards can be recycled in the inner box of the blue lidded bin.
- Heavily decorated cards with glitter or foil can be recycled at supermarket drop-off recycling points.
- Wrapping paper should go in the black refuse bin.  It cannot be recycled because it is too thin to produce good quality paper.
- Real Christmas trees can be chopped up and put in your brown composting bin, or taken to your local household waste recycling centre.
- Artificial trees should go in the black bin.
​- Cardboard and any other excess recycling can be recycled at one of the many local recycling banks which are situated at convenient locations throughout the borough. See www.welhat.gov.uk/recyclingcentres for more details.

In the event of bad weather, collections can be affected and updated information can be found on the council's website at www.welhat.gov.uk/servicedisruptions
Residents can also sign up to the winter text alert scheme to receive up-to-the-minute information on changes to council refuse and recycling services during adverse weather conditions or other unforeseen circumstances.

A normal collection service will resume from Monday 4 January.

A reminder...



If Thursday is your normal collection day, then put your bins out on Tuesday evening this week, because they will be collected on Wednesday (23 December) instead. That visit will collect both the brown and blue-lidded bins.

The next collection for the blue-lidded bins will be Thursday 7 January, but for the brown bins the next collection will be almost a month after this week's collection, on Thursday 21 January.

Check your dates below...
