Bin collection days to change next week
|19th February 2018|
Bin collection days in Powys will change for most households next week, the county council has confirmed.
Powys County Council has been improving the waste and recycling collection rounds to make them more efficient. The new rounds will help the council reduce the costs of providing these services to residents.
The new and improved rounds will start on Monday, February 26 and the council has written to all households to inform them of their new collection day. A list of upcoming dates for non-recyclable waste collections will also be provided, along with an updated guide to recycling in Powys.
Only the day of collection will change with the council continuing to collect recycling and food waste on a weekly basis and non-recyclable waste every three weeks.
Households will still need to put their waste and recycling out by 7.30am on their collection day even if the day doesn't change, as the time of collection is likely to be different to the previous rounds.
Cllr Phyl Davies, Cabinet Member for Waste and Recycling, said: "Given the numerous service changes that have occurred since the existing rounds were rolled out, they are not as efficient as they could be.
"A lot of work has been carried out to ensure that our new waste and recycling rounds are as efficient as they could be but this does mean that many households will see a change in their collection day.
"I'd encourage households to read their letter carefully so they know which day to put their bins out. Our guide will also help households recycle as much of their household waste as possible."
