How is the recycling service changing?
The new service will include the following:
A new weekly food waste collection
A new weekly recycling collection to include plastic pots, tubs and trays and cardboard
An optional charged garden waste collection service
When is the recycling service changing?
The changes will start to roll out across the District in September in three separate phases with the aim of completing it by November. The roll out programme is based on current collection rounds. This ensures that we can keep households on their normal collection day.The new service will be introduced to the majority of households in theChudleigharea during phase one (week commencing 14thSeptember 2015). However, because Chudleigh is serviced by more than one collection round, some properties in the outlying areas will be rolled out in phase three (week commencing 16thand 23rdNovember 2015).
We will be contacting residents in advance to let them know when the new recycling service is coming to their property and exactly what they will be able to recycle.
Six weeks before roll-outproperties will get a teaser leaflet giving them early information such as the date that their new recycling service starts and how they can subscribe to the new optional garden waste collection service.
Two to four weeksbefore roll out is introduced to a property, the following items will be delivered:
A new outdoor food waste container
A new reusable sack for recycling paper
A new recycling guide and collection calendar
A new set of bin and box stickers
A series of drop in sessions have been planned for each roll out phase. These events will give residents the opportunity to speak to the recycling team about the changes. They will be detailed on the teaser leaflet and on our website.
