Waste collection changes approved

On Tuesday 30th June at the ‘virtual’ full council meeting the proposed changes to household waste services were approved by 12 votes to 10. See the council statement here.

The main changes are:
To collect blue and grey bins every four weeks.
Glass collection to cease and glass put in the blue bins.
Food waste to continue to be collected every two weeks in the brown bins.
A proposed charge of c£35 for garden waste collection (in the brown bins).

The changes were proposed due to leases on the current vehicles ending in late summer/autumn 2021 and with the Scottish Government’s introduction of a drinks deposit return scheme in summer 2022.
