Changes to refuse and recycling collection services

03 Dec 2019

The waste and recycling team carried out a service review in Summer 2019. It was highlighted that school's refuse and recycling collections were being subsidised by the service.

What's changed

We will collect mixed recycling (rather than source separated) to limit the impact on the cost to schools. The recycling is sent to a materials recovery facility (MRF) for sorting.

The revised costings for 2020/21 will be available on school orders forms in Spring 2020.

As the prices have increased we encourage schools to review their bin numbers. The deadline to make changes is 20 December 2019.

If you need to make a change please email and one of the team will get back to you.
