Waste collections are changing in Colchester, due to the budget cuts, the council have had to introduce changes to services to save money. Residents have now had 180 litre wheelie bins delivered alongside brown wheelie bins for garden waste, they have been informed that if they recycle the correct items they should have space in their general waste wheelie bin.

One way to boost recycling rates is to introduce food waste collections, this is what Lewisham have done, with this they have changed from weekly collections to fortnightly collections with the aim to increase the borough recycling rates to 24.8%. This change has been issued due to estimations show that almost 39% of rubbish put into the general waste bin is food waste.
The wheelie bin service is a great one, but for a myriad of reasons, you may not know when your service is going to be coming. You could be new to a region, the service could have changed routes, or you could have changed services. Whatever the reasons, it's important to know when your wheelie bin men are coming.
