Information from Cotswold District Council:
From March 2020, your recycling collections are changing.
New containers and an information pack are being delivered to households in February 2020.
What is changing
Collection days for some residents may change; details of your collection days will be in the information pack delivered to you.
Until March 2020 the postcode checker will have your current collection dates in. Once the new service goes live, the checker will be updated.
The changes mean that you:
- will get a new cardboard bag to give you more capacity;
- can recycle extra items including textiles and shoes, batteries, cartons and small electrical items; and
- need to keep food waste separate and put it in your new outdoor food waste bin which is collected weekly.
Refuse and recycling will still be collected fortnightly. Garden waste will switch from weekly to fortnightly.
What you need to do
From March 2020, you will need two recycling containers: one for paper and another for glass.
Contact Cotswold District Council now if you only have one box so another one can be ordered for you before the new service starts.
