Bin days in South Norfolk set to change next month
South Norfolk Council’s waste and recycling collection routes are being reorganised, meaning residents’ bin days are likely to change from June 6.
Information packs are being sent out to those affected households, outlining any changes, as well as a new bin calendar.
The council says the changes will make the service more customer friendly, based around a move to a four-day collection week.
Councillor Kay Mason Billig, cabinet member for Environment and Recycling said: “The Council is making these changes to ensure that the recycling and refuse collection rounds are as efficient as possible, saving you, our Council Tax payers, money.
“The new collection rounds have been designed to cope with the larger amounts of recycling material that residents are putting out for collection; to optimise the distance travelled in each collection week following changes to our disposal sites and to accommodate the future housing and commercial growth that will be happening in the district.”
South Norfolk Council is the only authority in Norfolk that operates its own refuse and recycling service and, over the last two years, has invested more than £2.5 million in new vehicles and equipment.
