Recycling centres will not open from Tuesday 24 March onwards, for an indefinite period.
Visiting recycling centres is not included in the reasons for leaving home.

Waste collection changes ahead

Tewkesbury Borough Council to make changes to collection days.

news

Many of Tewkesbury borough residents will have a change to their waste and recycling collection day from April 2017.

 

Approximately 65% of homes will either have a new collection day or the collection weeks may switch.

 

A rise in new homes throughout the borough has meant that Tewkesbury Borough Council’s waste contractor, Ubico, has needed to review the way collection rounds are scheduled in order to make them more efficient.

 

The decision to adjust the schedule was also made to coordinate with the introduction of a brand new waste vehicle fleet which is more economical to run, more flexible to operate and can hold more waste.

 

In March, residents will receive a new leaflet through the post telling them what their new collection day will be. An important point to note is that food waste will be collected in a separate vehicle and most likely caddies will be emptied at a different time to the waste or recycling bin. If this happens, the bins haven’t been missed and the next crew will follow some time afterwards.

 

Lead member for clean and green environment, Councillor Jim Mason, said: “Reassuringly, even if your bin day changes, the type of service you receive will not change. Green bins and food waste will be collected one week with blue bins and more food waste collected the following week. You can still recycle as much as you do now.

 

“We’re sorry to have to inconvenience some of our residents with a change of routine, but it’s important these changes are made to get the best value for money for council tax payers.”
