Residents urged to put their bin out on time
The time waste and recycling bins are collected across Wychavon may change for some residents next week.
Changes are being made to all waste and recycling collection rounds across Wychavon to further improve efficiency and ensure the current high standard of service is maintained.
Only Chawson residents in Droitwich Spa will see a change to their collection day and residents have already been contacted about this.
Across the rest of the district, collection days will remain the same but the time bin crews arrive may change from what people are used to.
To make sure nobody misses their bin collection, residents are being urged from Monday (7 November) to make sure their bin is out by 7am on the day of their scheduled collection. Crews will collect anytime between 7am and 6pm.
Cllr Emma Stokes, Executive Board Member for Resident and Customer Services on Wychavon District Council, said: “We know some residents are used to collection crews arriving in their street at a certain time and so will delay putting their bin out until then. Because of the round changes, crews may arrive at a different time from next week.
“Please make sure your bin is out by 7am on your scheduled collection day. If you don’t do this then unfortunately we cannot come back to collect your bin until the next scheduled collection.
“I thank residents for their patience while we make these necessary round changes to further improve the high quality service we already offer.”
