FOI 12945

Bin size, and collection time

Request

I'd be very grateful for your assistance with the following request, which I make under the FOI Act:


1) Does your council use 240 litre bins, or a smaller size? If it's a smaller size, when did the changeover happen?


2) Does your council collect waste weekly? If it's bi-weekly, or tri-weekly, when did the changeover happen?

Response

Thank you for your Freedom of Information request; please find below the responses to your questions:-

1) Does your council use 240 litre bins, or a smaller size? If it's a smaller size, when did the changeover happen? Brentwood Borough Council provides a 240 litre wheeled bin for garden waste (however, please note that his service is on request as we levy a hire charge). Recycling is collected in sacks provided to the residents, glass is collected in a red box provided, food waste is collected from food waste caddy’s (we supply free food waste bags).

2) Does your council collect waste weekly? If it's bi-weekly, or tri-weekly, when did the changeover happen?

Residual, food waste and recycling is collect weekly (recycling was collected fortnightly but from 2013 it has also been collected weekly) Garden waste from either sacks or wheeled lease bins is collected fortnightly and glass is collected fortnightly.
