Rubbish – new contracts bring changes

August 7, 2017 5:49 PM

FCC Environmental have been awarded contracts to run local Household Recycling Centres (HRCs) and to collect recyclables.

A new system of kerbside collection will start next summer - black boxes will be used solely for glass collection and the blue lidded bins will take all other recyclables, including a wider selection of plastics and drink and food cartons.

The transfer of operation of the nine council-owned recycling centres, including those at Trowbridge and Warminster, to FCC Environment will take place on 2 October 2017. The company will carry out what's described as "a phased programme of site improvements" over the autumn.

There's no change to the green bin garden waste collections.
