Do not forget – major refuse collection changes across the borough from Monday

Published on Wednesday, 20th September 2023

Nuneaton and Bedworth residents are reminded that refuse collection changes will be taking place throughout the borough from Monday, 25 September.

Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council has issued postcards to all properties in the borough informing residents about the refuse collection changes.

The postcards include the new collection calendars which are also available online.

The arrangements includes additional collections on Friday and Saturday (22 and 23 September) of this week for those residents mainly affected by the changes.

Cllr Sue Markham, Portfolio Holder for Public Services, said:

“We would like to remind residents about these important changes which start this coming Monday and encourage everyone to visit our website where all bin changes have been published.

“Households can download their new collection calendar, showing whether their collection has changed.

“There are additional instructions on the calendar download pages for some properties which are affected by the changes.

“We are also asking residents whose collection is not changing to make sure their bin is presented by 7am as the time their collection takes place most likely will change.

“We have also implemented a strong social media campaign as well as promoting the changes prominently on our website and issuing posters and have a selection of pull up banners advertising the changes.’’

While not all rounds are affected by the introduction of new routes, the changes will mean a new bin collection day for around 40 per cent of the borough’s households.

This is happening because as the borough grows, it is important that bin collection routes remain as efficient as possible.

By making changes to bin collection schedules, it ensures fuel and resources will be used in the best possible way and that the numbers of houses collected from each day are balanced across the two-week schedule.
