WDC Waste management
One unforeseen consequence of this emergency has been the increase in material being put out for waste collection and recycling. Work practices also need to be updated to ensure staff safety in respect of social distancing. Both these issues now require a fundamental change in our waste management service.
Garden waste (green bin) collection will therefore be suspended for a month from Monday 6 April to ensure resources are focused on clearing household waste and recyclable material, as scheduled.
You will need to present your recycling bags and boxes as normal, but there will be new crews collecting on some routes, in a different van which holds all the materials together. Rest assured that these are then sorted and separated at the recycling centre.
WDC will review all available resources to re-introduce the green bin service as soon as possible.
