Waste collection changes

Following approval at the council's cabinet meeting on 16 July 2014, changes to your household waste kerbside collection service will be brought in from the second week in October 2014.  with your support these changes will help boost Bury's recycling rate, save more than £800,000 per year and reduce carbon emissions.  Towards the end of August and the start of September we will deliver to all residents an information leaflet explaining the changes and what will be happening.  Between mid September and the beginning of October we will deliver an information pack.  This will include a new collection calendar and advice on how to recycle more and put the right items in the right bin.  In the meantime, to help our residents understand the future changes, we have put together a comprehensive list of questions and answers.  To read the questions go to the 'Waste collection changes' web page.
