Recycling goes on the road – ask us your questions!
Published: Monday, 10 October, 2016
Recycling roadshows are taking place across the Stroud district to allow residents to find out more and ask questions about the new waste and recycling service starting in November.
The roadshows are a chance for local people to talk to Stroud District Council’s recycling team and get advice on all aspects of the new service.
From November residents will be able to recycle all their food waste in new food waste bins. Grey wheelie-bins are being provided to replace black bags. Food waste will be collected weekly and rubbish fortnightly, whilst the current recycling bins will continue to be collected every two weeks.
Councillor Simon Pickering, chair of the council’s environment committee, said:
"Whilst we have sent detailed information to every household in the district, these roadshows provide the ideal opportunity for anyone with any questions to have them answered. We’d also like to hear residents’ views on the new service."
The roadshows are being held at supermarkets, community buildings and farmers markets around the district.
Councillor Pickering added:
"Bin deliveries are almost complete. All households should have received their bins and bags by October 19. If you haven’t received yours by then, you should contact the council. New collection calendars are being posted to residents during October as well."
