Changes to bin collections start this week
|26th February 2018|
Bin collection days in Powys will change for most households this week, the county council has said.
Powys County Council has improved 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 started today (Monday, February 26).
Only the day of collection will change with the council continuing to collection 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 would ask residents to check their letter for their new collection day to avoid their bins being missed."
