New waste and recycling services start soon and will require residents to separate their food and garden waste using new outdoor food waste bins.
New food waste bins are being delivered to all households.
If you haven’t received your new food waste bin by 06 March, then please contact Cotswold District Council.
Food waste will be collected weekly from 18 March. Food waste will not be accepted in your garden waste bin after this date.
Any bins found containing food waste will not be emptied. Collection crews will check and if they find food waste in your garden bins, they won’t be able to collect them.
Food waste will be sent to anaerobic digestion while garden waste will be composted. Anerobic digestion reaches high temperatures that kill germs, while composting does not. If garden waste is contaminated by food, then there is a greater risk of spreading diseases.
