Collection of household waste under the old system concluded in August. From September 2012 household waste will be collected on Thursdays. The bins you need to put out for emptying will alternate — the standard green bin will go out one week and the blue-lid bins will go out the next. 'Hope that's clear!
STANDARD GREEN BINS
These are for food waste and other 'non-recyclable' household waste. They should be put out for emptying on the following Thursdays:
Sep: | 20
Oct: | 04 | 18
Nov: | 01 | 15 | 29
Dec: | 13 |
The blue-lid bins are for recycling. These should be put out for emptying on the following Thursdays:
Sep: | 13 | 27
Oct: | 11 | 25
Nov: | 08 | 22
Dec: | 06 | 20
From September 2012, the brown garden-waste bins will be emptied fortnightly, on a Monday. The relevant dates until the rest of the year are:
Sep: | 17
Oct: | 01 | 15 | 29
Nov: | 12 | 26
NB: After 26th November there will be no Brown Bin service until February.
Waste materials suitable for recycling go into the Blue-lid Bins. The new system will appear a little complicated at first — but take a look at the Re-cycling Info Wheel supplied by AVDC (see photograph, right) and this will help you determine what can be recycled and what can't.
Here's a summary of what should go into the Blue-lid recycling bins:
- All paper, telephone directories, catalogues, cardboard and cards (providing they have no glitter or foil on them)
- Any metal tins, cans, and aerosols (but not paint tins)
- Plastic bottles — but not their lids
- Glass bottles and jars (but not broken drinking glasses or china)
- Clean aluminium foil, scrunched up (!)
- Milk and juice cartons (i.e. TetraPaks and similar)
Please rinse and squash all tins, cans, plastic bottles and TetraPaks. Flatten cardboard boxes or tear them up.
