Update on Gloucestershire Waste Service

Dear Town and Parish Councillors,

Thank you for your continuing patience following the disruption to the waste and recycling collection service to some communities in the district, due to snow and ice.  Normal collections have now resumed.
The Emergency Collection points which were set up the week before Christmas (22nd – 24th December) in Bourton on the Water, Moreton in Marsh and Stow on the Wold are now closed.  If residents wish to dispose of household refuse before their next kerbside collection is due please take it to Fossecross Recycling Centre which is open everyday except New Years day.

Residents who did not receive a waste or recycling collection, due to the snow and ice the week before Christmas, should present all their waste and recycling kerbside for collection next week ( 3rd – 7th January) on their normal collection day.  Any additional refuse or recycling can be presented in black bin liners and cardboard boxes/carrier bags next to the grey wheeled bin/beige refuse bags and black recycling box, and it will also be collected.

Please do not overload wheeled bins, the lid must be closed or it cannot be emptied.
If resident’s refuse, recycling or food and garden waste is not collected on their  normal collection day they should not worry, and should leave it out and it will be collected the following day.  Residents  do not need to contact the council if their refuse is not collected on their normal day, the large volumes of materials which will be presented mean SITA may not be able to complete rounds on the specified day.

Extra resources will be used to ensure all refuse and recycling is cleared and if necessary collections will also be made on Saturday 8th January.
