Waste collection times have change see below.
Blue Lidded Bin. This is to store all recyclable material: paper, glass and cans plus cardboard and plastic bottles. This replaces the boxes currently used and will be collected every other week.
Green Bin - this remains the same, but note that as of Monday 4 August 2008 there will be a maximum amount of green waste that will be collected from each home. This limit will be 2 bins per household per collection.
If you currently put out more than this for collection it will not be collected after August 2008. Also the green bin collection service will be suspended for the months of November through and starts aiApril following year.
It is hoped that more households will use the subsidised home composting scheme, available from Warwickshire County Council. This will help to reduce the environmental impact caused by collecting material that can be composted at home. Details of the home composting scheme can be found at http://www.warwickshire.gov.uk/web/corporate/pages.nsf/(DisplayLinks)/EA6CA3867079394380257228003FF794 or call 0845 077 0757, charged at a local rate.
Grey Bin - for general waste. This should be used for anything that can't be recycled in the other bins. This rubbish will be sent to landfill and will be collected every week.
The Council is only asking residents to accommodate one new bin and is replacing your black boxes with another bin. It is expected that all properties, with a limited number of exceptions will use wheeled bins. However, the Council knows that there are a number of properties where wheeled bins cannot be used, i.e. where their front door opens directly onto the pavement or the property has no drive and is accessed by steps off the public highway. These properties will stay on sacks and boxes. If you are elderly, infirm or disabled and receive help in collecting your waste and recycling, the Council will look into this and will be writing to residents prior to the launch of the new service to confirm. The bins will have to be left at the property boundary with their lids down. No additional bags or boxes placed by or on the bins will be taken.Full details of the new service can be found at http://www.stratford.gov.uk/community/community-1428.cfm?source=pt
