New recycling collection services from 30 July 2018
Under our new contract with Hills Waste Solutions, which commences on 30 July 2018, Wiltshire residents will be able to recycle more plastic materials in their household bins.
The new materials include:
• Plastic pots, tubs and trays
• Drink and food cartons.
In addition to the current plastic bottles and cardboard, the new service will include yoghurt pots, plastic trays, margarine tubs, ice cream tubs and juice, milk and soup cartons.
From 30 July, all the additional materials will be collected in the blue lidded bins will accept the additional materials from that date.
Collections will still be fortnightly and collection days will not change. Residents will continue to use the same containers they already have. Additional recycling bins can be ordered if needed.
Roadshows and events
In order to directly communicate with as many Wiltshire residents as possible, we have booked a series of roadshows and events across the county. Members of the waste services team will be in attendance to hand out information leaflets and answer any questions that may arise. Examples of the new plastic materials will be displayed along with samples of the product produced as a result of the recycling process. The outline schedule is below (some dates/venues are still to be confirmed).
