Garden Waste Service

wheelie binFollowing the Borough Council’s approval for the new garden waste collection service they have compiled some web information that is now online at www.rugby.gov.uk/gardenwaste.

This information addresses most of the questions that have been seen on social media or that have been asked of the contact centre or through the website, and it is hoped you will find it useful when discussing the service with residents. However,  feedback is welcomed, either on the clarity or consistency of the information or on information that could be added.

There are links to this web information from the recycling pages of the website and from the home page. It can also be found through the site search facility.

The Borough Council has  now also confirmed that subscriptions will open on 6 March 2017, either through the weblink above, 24/7, or via (01788) 533332 between 9am and 5pm. They will accept card payments only. Credit cards will incur a 2.5 per cent surcharge, but debit cards will not incur any additional charges.

Social media, radio and newspaper advertising will start in the next few weeks, but in the meantime you may wish to “like” the council’s new facebook page at www.facebook.com/rugbyboroughcouncil.

Changes to waste collections this Christmas

binsResidents will benefit from an additional black bin collection next week (week beginning 19 December) as a result of changes to the waste collection schedule this Christmas.

The additional collection is needed to make sure that every household has a black bin collection in both the week before and the week after Christmas.

The black bin is for general waste that cannot be composted or recycled. Food waste that cannot be composted, such as meat and bones, can be placed in the black bin, but the council will not empty bins containing garden waste.

Garden waste can be composted at home, kept until green bin collections restart, or taken to one of the Warwickshire County Council-run tips.

Black bins will be collected in weeks beginning 12 December, 19 December, 2 January and 16 January. Blue-lid recycling bins will continue to be collected fortnightly, on residents’ normal collection weeks.

Further changes to the black bin collection schedule come into effect for some residents during week beginning 23 January, and affected residents will be notified in the week beginning 9 January.

More information on changes to the Christmas waste collection schedule can be found at www.rugby.gov.uk/recycling, where residents can check their own personal schedule using the postcode search.
