In the news: Consultation launches on future of recycling, black, and bulky waste collection

A consultation has been launched to get residents' views on how the council should collect recycling, black sack, and bulky waste.

The consultation is open from today and will close at midnight on Friday 30 September.

The aim of any new service is to create one that meets the borough's ambitious recycling and climate change targets.

The council is already improving its food and garden waste service this October when it will introduce a separate weekly food waste collection following a consultation last year.

Councillor Kevin Blake, Cabinet Member for Environment and Carbon Reduction, said: "At present on average a staggering 988kg of waste is produced per household. That's the weight of a car.

"If we are to meet our carbon net-zero objectives we must start to act now, and we will need the support of every resident of the borough to get there.

"We will listen to our residents to help us shape a service that is fit for a carbon net-zero future - please take part in our consultation and make sure your voice is heard."
