Rubbish and recycling collection day changes

South Gloucestershire Council

About 43,000 households in South Gloucestershire are to to see their rubbish and recycling schedules change during the last week of September.

The changes are being made in preparation for the introduction of weekly food waste collections and fortnightly plastic bottle collections, planned for November.

The Council says:

“If your household is affected, you will be notified with a bin hanger on the black wheeled bin, or by information posted through your letterbox, that will inform you of your new collection arrangements.”

You can also check your next black bin collection on the Local Connections page of the South Gloucestershire Council website.

To assist with extra waste resulting from the schedule changes, the Council says it will collect a maximum of one bag of household waste left next to the black bin for the first collection following the switch.

The Council also advises:

“The time of day that your collections are made may also change, so please make sure that your containers are out at their normal collection point by 7am on the morning of your collection.”

    Our day of collection was changed from wed 29th sept to oct 1st. Half of the village had their green bins emptied and the rest of us did not. I tellephoned today, they said it would be emptied today, given a reference 00225291. Still not collected the waste. We have to take the bin through the house, my husband had a heart attack in August. No way am i taking it back through the house, if it is not collected for a fortnight it will be stinking as there is waste food in it. We pay our full council tax and get a service like this.
