New waste calendars for a third of York households

March 2, 2017 4:00 PM

The Council is writing to around a third of all households in York to let them know that their recycling collection day will change from the 1st of April 2017.

Households affected by the changes can expect to receive a new rubbish and recycling calendar in the post. The Council is also providing free boxes, lids and nets to households affected by the change.

The changes will enable the roll out of recycling collections to rural areas of the city that don't currently have them, as well as help to make the waste service more efficient.

As a result of the review collection times will vary, so the Council is reminding all households that they must present their household waste and recycling on the kerbside by 7am on the morning of their collection.

Rubbish (grey bin/black bags) and garden waste (green bin) collections are not affected by the changes.

More information is available online at http://www.york.gov.uk/wastechanges. This includes a list of all households affected by the change.
