More collections of unwanted green bins

South Glos has already been round collecting in some areas, but in other areas residents didn't hear about it until it had happened.

Details of the green bin removal day will be provided on a tag secured to your black bin around one to two weeks before the collection. This is a one off service and if you no longer want your green bin it must be put out for removal on the date on the leaflet you receive.

The latest local collection dates are as follows:

Chipping Sodbury - Wednesday 4 Feb

Yate - Tue 17 Feb
(This includes the Dodington Parish off Shire Way roads and along Rodford Way)

Apparently the houses on the Birds estate were correctly notified and their bins were collected in December, so if you live on the Birds don't expect a collection unless you've already had a tag to tell you. We've done our best to clarify this with South Glos and this is what they've told us.

You may well ask what is happening to all the bins that are being collected - they're not being scrapped, they are being cleaned out and reissued to new houses and to people who decide to take up the paid-for garden waste collection later on.

All green bins for removal must be outside by 7 am on the appropriate day and must be empty. They will not take any bins that contain waste, including garden waste.

If you currently receive help putting out your bins and require assistance to put your unwanted green bin out, please contact 01454 868000 or e-mail prior to your removal day.

If you are using the bin for another use you can continue to do so.
